Sign the Petition to

U.S. House of Representatives & U.S. Senate

NatureBridge multi-day programs and others like them have immense educational value because they immerse students in hands-on scientific learning in America’s most majestic classrooms—our national parks. Many U.S. students are lagging behind in science proficiency, and dedicated teachers working to reverse this trend often build their curriculums around the NatureBridge experience to enhance and reinforce their lesson plans through this unique opportunity.

Students and teachers have planned, fundraised, borrowed gear, and structured their classroom learning to take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

For the majority of our kids and schools this trip cannot be rescheduled or replicated, and the government shutdown is depriving them of this once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity.

We call on Congress to arrive at a swift solution to this crisis and reopen our national parks so that educational programs such as NatureBridge can continue.

Signed,

NatureBridge

Tell Congress our children and teens need their national parks back! 

Help us make sure that all members of Congress know that every day national parks are closed, our children and teens are missing out on life-changing, hands-on environmental science programs in our parks.
