ELP School Presentation

  • $5/person for One-hour
  • $8/person for Two-hours

For groups not interested in our one day ELDP program or two-day ELP program, we also offer shorter one or two hour ELP SCHOOL PRESENTATIONS. These interpretive presentations offer an age-specific orientation and introduction to the natural and cultural history of Fort Ross, including the Fort Compound buildings, fort neighborhoods and other FRSHP sites of interest, an introduction to the varied cultures and past and present eras of Metini-Fort Ross, including the Kashia Pomo, Alaska Native, Russian and Ranch Eras, a presentation highlight includes a hands-on visit to the rich interpretive display of the Magazin (illustrating the 19th century Russian American Company global fur trade) and/or a Trade Skit, for younger visitors.

If you pair this professionally led Fort Compound presentation with other guided site visits (to the orchard, cemetery, etc.), a hike from Reef Campground, and/or with an independent visit to our museum, our Sandy Cove beach plus your picnic lunch, you’ve a half day or more of wonderful activities for your school group!
