Salt River Bay’s "Every Kid In A Park" Program

Salt River Bay National Historical Park & Ecological Preserve

 

 

The Every Kid in a Park Program offers every public school fourth grade student the opportunity to visit and learn about the Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve. The three-point program includes an introductory powerpoint presentation to the park at the school, followed by an on-site park tour, and a post-experience in-class visit by the instructor to review what was learned. 

 

The Visitor Center Tour introduces students to Salt River Bay’s incredible history.  They explore Taino culture by viewing artifacts and a PowerPoint presentation. They also discover the story of Columbus’ encounter, where it occurred, and learn about Taino cosmology in a craft-making exercise.  Students tour the west side of the park and learn about the natural resources through ranger led activities.  During the post-experience visit to the school, students participate in a question and answer session about Salt River Bay’s historical and natural significance.
