Distance Learning/Video conferencing Skyping National Parks

I contacted the National Park Service.  Their website, in particular their teacher portal (http://www.nps.gov/teachers/index.htm) is being updated.  Currently there are lesson plans but no links to distance learning/video conferencing/skyping opportunities.  I was sent an archive of the National Park Service sites that currently do distance learning/video conferencing/skyping opportunities.  Here is the list of the 61 sites that have opportunities out of the ~400 total in the NPS :
