Ranger Programs at Flagg Ranch

July 19, 2012 Posted by: DL

Flagg Ranch Campfire Circle

Bring the whole family and join a ranger for an old-fashioned cozy campfire talk!  Park ranger naturalists give campfire programs at the Flagg Ranch Campfire Circle on Thursdays and Saturdays during the summer months (June 21-August 12, 2012). These programs are family-friendly and usually last 45 minutes.  Topics may include anything and everything related to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, including wildlife, geology, and cultural history. Junior Rangers can use this program to help fulfill one of the requirements towards earning a Junior Ranger badge or patch.
