    Where land, history, stories and dreams become one...  This program helps students develop historical thinking skills. The content deals with how this place has been special to diverse people from long ago to the present.  There is a strong emphasis on First Nations perspectives of cultural changes over time.

    Your group will hike with a park interpreter beneath the sandstone cliffs in the Archaeological Preserve to view a representative sampling of the rock art.  We are happy to customize content to meet the needs of your students.
