Junior Ranger Day at Dinosaur National Monument a Success
Contact: Carla Beasley, 435-781-7700
April 26, Dinosaur National Monument unveiled a new Junior Paleontologist Program in front of a crowd of eager youth ready to become the first Junior Paleontologists under the new program. Approximately 15 children with their families participated in various activities throughout the afternoon that were aimed to help the youth earn their Junior Paleontologist badge.
“The new program includes activities for children as young as four. And best of all, the activity booklet and badge are now offered at no cost to all who want to participate,” said Carla Beasley, chief of interpretation.
National Park Service Junior Ranger Programs are designed to provide participants with the flexibility to see and interact with the park at their own pace and within the limits of their own time.
