"EXPLORING, LEARNING, PROTECTING"
Have you ever put your hand into a bear's footprint? Have you ever tried on a ranger hat? Here's your chance!
Shenandoah National Park has some special activities planned for National Junior Ranger Day. The program is designed to help children and families connect with parks in ways that engage them in exploring, learning, and practicing stewardship.
Most of the programs are open to visitors of all ages. Special "Junior Ranger Day"certificates and patches will be available.
Activities meet at (Dickey Ridge Vistor Center, Mile 4.6 and Byrd Visitor Center, Mile 51), on Skyline Drive, unless otherwise noted. There is no charge for the programs, and there's no need to register.
