Guides for Educators

Many California State Parks have Teacher's Guides available for educators interested in helping their students get more out of their park experience. Unfortunately, most guides are not available on-line, but be sure to inquire with park staff if you will be visiting a park and would like to know if there is a teacher's guide available. As guides become available in electronic format, we will be providing them as links from this portion of the State Parks website as well as from the individual park webpages.
