Things To Do!

Become a Junior Ranger

A Junior Ranger is a young person between the ages of 7 and 12 who completes the Junior Ranger activities and promises to help care for and learn more about their national park. Children 4 to 6 years old explore the park on their own level as a Junior Ranger, Jr. Join us on many ranger led hikes and learning experiences!

Go Questing

Find more than 40 adventures-called quests-in the Ohio & Erie Canalway! Put on your sleuthing hat and follow rhyming clues and a curious map to each hidden quest box. Along the way, discover the area's treasures—the natural and cultural gems of the Canalway.
