NatureBridge provides hands-on environmental science programs for children and teens in the world’s best classrooms—our national parks. Our multi-day, overnight programs take place in Yosemite National Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California; Olympic National Park in Washington State; and Prince William Forest Park in Virginia. Founded as Yosemite Institute in 1971, today NatureBridge welcomes more than 600 schools and 35,000 students and teachers each year. In Olympic, every year more than 5,000 students and teachers explore and experience ancient forests, alpine terrain, coastal marine habitats and the largest river restoration in U.S. history.
