National parks are places for people of all ages- those who are young in years and those who are young at heart!
Don't let your parents have all of the fun. Ask your parents to stop by one of the visitor centers at nearby New River Gorge National River, talk to a park ranger and find out if there are any special activities planned for kids.
Kids of all ages can become a WebRanger online. Explore, learn about, and protect our national parks by completing fun web activities: design your own ranger station, explore parks, and collect virtual junior ranger badges. more…
