Junior Ranger Day

Junior Ranger Logo

Saturday May 5, 2012 is Junior Ranger Day at Stones River National Battlefield. We will be joining state and national parks across the nation by hosting special programs to encourage children and families to enjoy the vast natural and cultural resources in our nation`s parks.

In addition to the opportunity for children ages 6-12 to complete the park`s Junior Ranger activity booklet, all children will have a chance to earn special Junior Ranger day items like patches, pins, and certificates by participating in activities that shed light on the leisure activities of Civil War soldiers including games like cricket and writing letters home.

You can join us for Junior Ranger Day programs from 10 AM to 4 PM. Stop by the visitor center first to pick up your Junior Ranger Day guide.
