HARKERS ISLAND, NC–Calling all kids, ages 5 -13! Come on out to Cape Lookout National Seashore this weekend and become a National Park Service Junior Ranger on National Junior Ranger Day! April 16th through April 24, 2016 is National Parks Week, which begins with Junior Ranger Day, a family, fun-oriented day for everyone to enjoy.
Come on out to Harkers Island Visitor Center this Saturday to meet a Ranger and participate in outdoor discovery with your family, while learning the importance of the cultural and natural resources in Cape Lookout National Seashore. Kids who complete a Junior Ranger Activity booklet will earn a badge and certificate and be sworn in as a Junior Ranger. By taking the oath, each Junior Ranger will become a steward, helping to preserve the future of the Southern Outer Banks.
The Junior Ranger program is free, educational, and is encouraged in almost all parks across the nation. It teaches young visitors to "explore, learn, and protect," which is the Junior Ranger motto. With the Centennial year of the National Park Service upon us, Cape Lookout National Seashore wants to connect and create with the next generation of park visitors and supporters.
Come play outside, become a Junior Ranger, and "Find your Park" in Cape Lookout National Seashore.
