Ever dream of becoming a Park Ranger?
This year you can at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park! Come and help us celebrate the 101st year of America's National Parks and become a second-century "Dream Ranger!"
The Dream Ranger History Series reveals secrets of history! Learn how pioneers survived a 200-mile journey in freezing winter, the hiding place of American Indian warriors in the Gap, and where you can still find scars left upon the land from the Civil War. And so much more!
The Nature Series transports Dream Rangers into the depths of the natural world... from inside the mountain, onto the forest floors and into the streams for a closer look at the mysteries of the natural world around us! Your role in the future of your national parks will come into focus like never before.
Dream Rangers can acquire the skills of a real mountain pioneer in the Mountain Culture Series! Make a spring tonic, play a mountain dulcimer, cook up lye soap or a pioneer feast over the campfire, create a powder horn, split a shingle, or learn to engrave the metal when building a flintlock musket. And so much more!This is but a sampling of the “Oh My Gosh” programs being offered!
