Shape Up, Junior Rangers and Take a Walk on the Wild Side at Vicksburg National Military Park
Contact: Melissa Perez, 601-636-8715
As the days grow hotter it can be a challenge for children to get moving outdoors. Sometimes it's best to take a cue from Mother Nature and go nocturnal! As part of its "Shape Up, Junior Ranger" program, Vicksburg National Military Park and Shape Up Vicksburg invite children to join us on a 1-mile Owl Discovery Walk to learn more about owls and other nighttime creatures that call the park home. After the walk, we'll have a hands-on learning experience all about owls and the special skills that make them a top nighttime predator!
