Earth to Sky explores how National Park Service (NPS) and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) interpreters, educators, and scientists are using NASA content to help visitors connect with the natural and cultural heritage of our Nation. While Landsat observes Earth from beyond the sky, there are many things to be learned from being on the Earth. Earth to Sky bridges satellite data and ground observations to help form a better understanding of our planet. You can also learn more about the collaboration itself, and peruse the site for valuable resources.
