Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum is best known for its hiking trails and shoreline, but it is also a vibrant center of education. Thousands of children visit JPPM each year to learn about history, archaeology, and nature through our engaging field trips.

At JPPM we believe that you learn by doing. With that in mind, we offer a variety of educational opportunities for people of all ages, such as our monthly pre-school s​torytime, workshops, and speaker series.

If you would like more information about the educational opportunities at JPPM please contact Debra Rantanen at​
