Chamizal National Memorial will celebrate National Junior Ranger Day and Earth Day on Saturday, April 21st. Children of all ages and their families are invited to participate in a day of fun and learning sponsored by the National Park Service. Area youth will have the opportunity to enjoy free programs and activities. These include the Memorial's new water table, a puppet show, games, crafts, special face painting, being sworn in as official Junior Rangers, and even learning how to make a small piñata that could be featured as part of the next exhibit in our Los Paisanos Gallery. In addition, Chami, the Spotted Ground Squirrel will also make a special appearance to share in the fun. Junior Ranger Day activities are scheduled from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. This event is free for everyone so come visit Chamizal National Memorial and "explore, learn, protect" your national parks and your planet.
Also on Saturday, there will be a free cancer awareness fair from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. followed by a Beatles Tribute Concert, "Sgt. Pepper's Wondrous Wigorium." Tickets for the concert can be purchased by calling 915-317-2087.
We hope you'll join us for a fun-filled day followed by an evening of music. For questions or more information, please contact the park at 915-532-7273 or visit our website at www.nps.gov/cham.
