    Zion National Park in Springdale, UT is looking for a Teacher Ranger Teacher for the summer. They are specifically looking for middle and/or high school teachers. 

    Here is the link to explain more about the TRT program, The National Parks Service | Teacher Ranger Teacher Program

    The Zion National Park cohort is July 10 - August 20, 2022. 

    There are THREE requirements for all participants in the TRT program:  

    1. A minimum of 160 hours of service to your National Park site.  
    2. Successful completion of the graduate course: TRT Field Experience: Place-Based Education on Public Lands 
      1. This is a three-credit hour class, which requires 45 contact hours. Graduate course guidelines indicate that for each contact hour, 2-3 hours of readings and activities are typical. Most of these additional hours are achieved through the TRTs National Park, but TRTs should plan on 3-4 hours per week for course readings, assignments, and discussions.  
    3. Register for the 3.0 graduate credits (Pass/Fail) through CU Denver:  Cohort 2: August 26th deadline  

    *Failure to meet any of the deadlines above will result in forfeiture of your $3000 summer stipend.  

    Any folks that are interested please have them contact Amanda Rowland
