Summer Ranger Programs

Join a park ranger for an interpretive program and learn about the arts in the park.

2013 Summer Ranger Programs

Bugs in the Park: Join Ranger Anna in an insect adventure and learn why bugs are important, even if we might not like them.

Master in Disguise: Join Ranger Colleen for an interactive program learning about emotions and facial expressions.

Ranger Patrick's Puppet Pals: Join Ranger Patrick for a look at the different kinds of puppets from around the world and how they work.

Behind the Scenes: A Backstage Tour: Join Ranger Will as we wander into the woods to see and hear what goes into a Theatre-in-the-Woods performance.

Two different Ranger Programs are offered at 11:45 am and 12:00 pm, every Tuesday through Saturday* during our Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods season. Programs meet at the kiosk in the meadow and are about 20 minutes in length. Check the information board at the footbridge or call (703) 255-1824 to find out which Ranger Programs will be available on the day of your visit.

Programs are free and recommended for kids five and older.

*Ranger programs are canceled for rain or if the day has been determined to have "Code Red" Air Quality.
