Pere Marquette has an extensive interpretive program. We have a new Visitor's Center with state-of-the-art displays open year round. Programs are offered throughout the year. On-site programs are offered April through October, while off-site programs are offered November through March. Examples of programs include nature hikes, wetlands programs, scavenger hunts, and owl programs. Special programs offered only in specific seasons of the year include nature hikes when the leaves are at their most extreme beauty, Bald Eagle watching programs, and wild edible foods programs.

If a teacher or group of people would like a program catered especially to meet their needs, they can call to see when a date can be arranged. Also, the interpreter is available to go to a teacher's classroom for presentations, with advance scheduling.

For scheduling or more information about interpretive programs, contact the Site Interpretive Program Coordinator, Scott Isringhausen, at 618-786-3323.

All interpretive programs at Pere Marquette State Park are free of charge.
