Park Programs December 2011
Contact: Benjamin Hayes, 671-333-4051
Join park rangers this month for a variety of fun and interesting interpretive programs. Park Rangers will show movies, lead special guided tours of park sites, and share personal stories of those who fought in the Pacific War. Programs provide visitors an opportunity to learn about park resources, the people we honor, and how events of the past still influence us today. For specific program details, please see the attached schedule of events below.
All events are free and open to the public. Most programs occur outside at different locations and vary in length from thirty minutes to two hours. Hikes are moderate and short but traverse slippery and steep terrain, so wear appropriate footwear and attire. Visitors are encouraged to bring water, umbrellas, and insect repellant. In the event of inclement weather, programs may be delayed or cancelled. For detailed information, or if you have questions on specific programs, call 333-4050.
