National Junior Ranger Day in Acadia
Celebrate National Junior Ranger Day in Acadia
Enjoy a special family day in Acadia as part of National Junior Ranger Day. On Saturday, April 24, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., children ages 5 to 12 and their families (former, current, and “wanna-be” junior rangers included) are invited to get outside, get moving, explore, and discover how to protect Acadia’s natural and historical resources.
Junior Ranger Day will take place at the Sieur de Monts Spring area on Route 3 south of Bar Harbor. The day’s events will include stations for games, arts, nature hikes, and cultural activities. Participants will earn a National Junior Ranger Day patch. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Come for the whole event or stop by anytime for part of it. Activities run rain or shine. This event is part of a nationwide National Junior Ranger Day celebration. The event is sponsored by Acadia National Park, the Wild Gardens Committee of Friends of Acadia, the Abbe Museum and the College of the Atlantic Dorr Museum.
