Family Fun at Gateway NRA
Harp Petting Zoo for Kids
Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge –Queens
Sunday, February 22

It's winter and we don't have a lot of wildlife around but come to see what strange beasts these are. Harpist Mia Theodoratus will bring a variety of instruments for demonstration. See a pedal harp, a Celtic harp, an electric harp. Kids with an inquisitive mind and clean hands can examine instruments. A performance by the ensemble will conclude the program.
Let's Move Outside Junior Rangers
Let's Move Outside Jr. Rangers is a fitness initiative dedicated to getting kids and families to take advantage of America's outdoors with active recreation and learning in National Parks. Children ages 7-12 are invited to get a healthy start to a healthy future by participating in any of the guided programs that are offered at all of Gateway's sites, throughout the year. In addition, they can embark on a self-guided Jr. Ranger adventure with their families, by picking up a Jr. Ranger booklet at any visitor contact station. Jr. Rangers who participate in ranger-guided programs or the self-guided program can earn a certificate, Junior Ranger badge or a special patch, while championing the Jr. Ranger motto: "explore, learn and protect."
Make your local national park, your "Gateway" to adventure, fitness, and fun!
