Junior Ranger Week Activities
National Parks Week (April 21-29, 2012) is a great time to celebrate the future of the NPS: Junior Rangers! Arches National Park will offer special activities daily to engage the minds, hands, and hearts of these most important visitors. Our Schedule of Events lists just one of several activities available each day; a complete list of daily programs will be posted at the visitor center.
Did You Know?
In the late 1800s, John Wesley Wolfe, a disabled Civil War veteran, and his son, Fred, built a homestead in what is now Arches National Park. A weathered log cabin, root cellar, and corral remain as evidence of the primitive ranch they operated for more than 10 years.
