Educational Experiences at Arkansas State Parks

Educators, are you looking for field trip ideas? Arkansas State Parks is the state's largest provider of non-formal educational field trip opportunities for elementary school, high school and homeschool students.

The State Parks of Arkansas protect and manage some of the most important natural and historic sites in the state. An important part of our mission is to share those with you and your students through field trips and creative curriculum resources. We are a vital component of the Arkansas education system and we look forward to having you visit.

An educational field trip to a state park can make history and science that have only been read about in textbooks come alive. When students get the chance to form personal connections with these places that are practically in their own backyards, lifelong memories are made and a strong sense of Arkansas citizenship is reinforced.
