More than 100,000 students in some 5,000 classrooms around the world participated in an electronic field trip to Bryce Canyon National Park, today.
The fourth to eighth grade students called in to ask questions of park rangers and have them answered live. The free program included two live hour-long broadcasts available across public television stations and online.
Made possible by the National Park Service, National Park Foundation, George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation and Bryce Canyon Natural History Association, today’s live broadcast was one of a series of similar televised field trips that can be viewed online at www.nationalparks.org. They include visits to Great Smokey, Teton, Independence, Fort Davis, Manzanar, Carlsbad, Everglades, Hawaii Volcanoes, Grand Canyon and Little Rock Central national parks, historic sites and monuments.
