The park is a great place for kids to explore. Kids can learn about the cultural and natural resources of the park by attending special ranger-led programs for kids or by participating in the park's Junior Ranger program. Have your child become an "official" Junior Ranger by successfully completing a booklet filled with educational activities. This booklet is available at the Mound City Group Visitor Center.

Did You Know?
The term "Hopewell" derives from the farm where excavations of an earthwork site (Hopewell Mound Group) occurred in 1891-1892 under the direction of Warren K. Moorehead. The property was owned by a local dry goods merchant and former Confederate Army soldier, Mordecai Cloud Hopewell.
