Park for Every Classroom

Park for Every Classroom is a teacher professional development program, done in partnership with the National Park Service, focused on place-based service learning. Each summer, Essex Heritage welcomes a cohort of local educators for a week-long workshop that visits sites across Essex County and provides assistance in developing partnerships and strategies that teachers can bring back to their classrooms.
