Are you 18 or older? Do you love learning? The Senior Ranger Program is just the thing for you! Senior rangers complete 7-10 activities in the senior ranger booklet and attend two ranger-led programs or volunteer with trail crew for a day to earn their senior ranger patch. Activities include completing a challenging crossword puzzle, journaling, exploring three self-guiding trails, and more. Pick up a copy of the booklet, available for a fee at Eastern National outlets in the park, and begin your exploration!
