National Park Service - Park Geology

National Park Service, Geologic Resources Division

This site provides information on the geology in and around the national parks. Sections of the web site are devoted to programs about disturbed lands restoration, mineral and resource management, and geology and soils. A collection of educational activities and teacher resources encourage teaching science using the national parks as examples. The web site also includes a park geology tour that allows users to select types of features they want to view, with links to photographs, maps and geology field notes from several parks.
