Educational Programs

Warriors’ Path State Park Environmental Education School Programs

Warriors’ Path State Park offers a wide range of natural learning experiences for children and teens! You and your students can enjoy wildlife in the classroom, conservation projects in the schoolyard, and nature discovery just outside the door.

These learning activities are offered as a free service by Tennessee State Parks, and are available throughout the school year (fall, winter, and spring).

Each April and May, we take requests for programs for the next school year. Spring is the time to arrange for a nature hike, creek walk, or other field trip to Warriors’ Path. Spring is also the time to request that Ranger Marty Silver bring his award-winning nature education programs to your school.

We accept program requests in order as we receive them, and then arrange a complete schedule for the next school year. So the sooner you call, the more likely we can include your school on our calendar.

Just let us know how we can serve you!
