Our National Parks are often called America’s “Crown Jewels.”  In over 400 parks, they protect the best of our historic, scientific and scenic heritage. Battlefields and barrier islands; forts and fossils; glaciers and geysers; monuments and mansions and the list goes on!

From Yellowstone to the Everglades, Acadia to Big Bend, and many parks in between, we will explore what is unique about various parks from the Rockies to the Atlantic. Half of each class will be a visual presentation by the instructor.
