McGregor Park Environmental Education Program

Age Group Served: 3rd through 7th Grade

Type of Program: The McGregor Park Environmental Education Program welcomes interested school and community groups wanting to learn more about the natural and cultural history of the region and local resource management issues. Participants are led through hands-on, interactive, education stations with activities and illustrative kits, interpretive hikes, and subject specific presentations. Experienced environmental educators and specialists use a combination of outdoor and indoor settings. Groups of 10 to 70 participants are welcome. Spanish/English bilingual guides are available. Program is ADA-accessible.

Subjects Addressed:  Participants can choose one or two of the following themes:

  • Salmon and the Riparian Zone
    Students explore the life cycle of salmon in the Rogue River and the role the riparian zone plays in keeping salmon and our world healthy.  In addition, they will learn about the relationship between beaver, salmon and the riparian zone, the significance of salmon to other species, including humans, and what is being done to protect salmon and this important environment.
  • Forest Management          
    Students will explore the complex job of what it means to manage our forests.  They will learn about the lifecycle of a tree, different forest environments in southern Oregon, noxious weeds and other threats to the health of our forest environments, the importance of fire in our forests, and the products that come from our forests.
  • Fire Ecology
    Students will learn about the adaptations plants and animals have developed to survive and actually benefit from fire.  They will learn how forest fires—presently and historically—are an important component in a healthy forest, where fire comes from, and what wildland firefighters are doing to manage fire in our forests.  
  • Wonderful Wildlife
    Students explore Southern Oregon wildlife and its unique adaptations and characteristics.  They will also learn how certain species of wildlife help to support the health of our environment and what rare or endangered species in our region can tell us about our world.
  • Botany
    Students learn techniques for plant identification; parts of a flower, leaf types and plant adaptations, rare plants of southern Oregon and the threats to their survival, how seeds travel, and plant materials used by humans.
  • Indians of the Rogue
    Students will learn about the Native Americans who lived along the Rogue River in southern Oregon. They will learn about their history, seasonal settlement patterns, the foods and materials they used, and their use of fire as a land management tool.
