This National Park Service website offers an education section which includes: programs for visiting school groups involving the geological and evolutionary processes of the park, working with fossil casts, and other fossil activities; a list of classroom materials to send for (some have cost) including a horse fossil study kit, a general fossil kit, a teacher packet, and a videotape on the paleontology work at the park and evolution of the horse; and a list of teacher workshops in Oregon. There are species lists for vertebrate and plant fossils, diagrams of the major geologic formations and illustrations of different paleobiomes, species lists for existing flora and fauna, and a fire management plan. Regional and park history is covered as well as the history of the Chinookan, Sahaptian, Shoshonean, and Salishan Indians of Eastern Oregon. There is also information for planning a visit to the park.
