I was recently accepted into the Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) program at Grand Canyon National Park for Summer 2010.
This is an 8 week program run by the National Park Service to primarily reach out to Title I (low income) schools and urban youth who may find themselves with less opportunity to connect with the outdoors.
I plan to post pics of the experience, as well as lesson plans and bibliographies related to environmental education and to Grand Canyon itself. Stay tuned.
For more information check out the TRT website as maintained by NPS.
