Junior Ranger Day
Everyone who participates will receive a handsome Junior Ranger badge.
For kids of all ages. Kids! Ask your teacher if he or she is planning on bringing your class!
A variety of resource agencies from around Missouri will have booths, presentations and activities about a wide spectrum of natural history topics. There will be live snakes, nature games, talks about caves, water quality and wildlife. Something for everyone!
This event is aimed at Fourth and Fifth grade students, but kids of all ages will benefit. Many schools will be bringing their classes, but homeschoolers and "just plain folks" are welcome and invited! Everything is FREE.
Activities run from 9:30 to 2:00 with the eagle presentation first thing in the main picnic shelter.
