Rome, NY – Are you looking for something to do with the kids this weekend? Why not visit Fort Stanwix National Monument: Junior Ranger & Earth Day Kite Party (in conjunction with the Rome Clean & Green)! This special day of fun takes place on April 18th from 10 –11:30 am and 1:30 –3 pm and will be both indoors and outside and children of all ages are welcome to participate!
During the program, you can make your own kite out of recycled material and then test fly it on the park grounds. You are also welcome to bring your own pre-made kite! You will also be able to take a trip down "Recycle Aisle," an interactive exhibit about the benefits of reducing, reusing, and recycling. Throughout the day, free Junior Ranger books will be provided to children and their families, allowing them to explore the park at their own pace. And all Junior Rangers earn an official Fort Stanwix Junior Ranger Badge!
