Wondering what to do with the kids on a cold, wintery Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock? Buffalo National River has the answer. Bring them to the Ponca Elk Education Center at the north end of Boxley Valley where the National Park Service is proud to offer "Second Saturday" in January, February and March. Participants can experience Buffalo National River during this fun indoor activity highlighting "safety in the outdoors".  

Materials will also be provided for kids to have an opportunity to make crafts plus they will become a Junior Ranger receiving their badge and certificate. This event is open to the public at no charge so make your plans to join us at our "Second Saturday" events in the town of Ponca on Hwy 43.
