America’s national forests, national parks, national wildlife refuges, waterways, and other public lands comprise nearly one-third the area of the United States, and thus offer unique teaching and learning opportunities. Hands on the Land, a national network of field classrooms, connects students, teachers, families, and volunteers to these special places all across America. Within the communities of Hands on the Land sites, public, non-profit, and private partners customize hands-on experiences using local natural, historical, and archaeological settings to bring classroom learning to life.
