One mission of the National Park Service (NPS) is to educate the next generation of national park supporters; however, not every elementary schooler is able to visit a national park. The NPS plans to expand their outreach through distance learning. The project goal was to assist Rock Creek Park and Friends of Peirce Mill with their distance learning initiative by assessing the distance learning technologies used by other national parks, developing interactive virtual lessons about Peirce Mill for third grade students, and creating training materials for the park and partners. Interviews with educators from national parks and other organizations revealed trends in techniques and technologies used in their distance learning programs. A recommendation was made to Rock Creek Park about how to develop and conduct distance learning programs.
