This national park was created in 1972 to help preserve and tell the story of the Permian Sea. Believe it or not, these mountains that tower high above the desert used to be a reef at the bottom of the ocean! However, this park is more than just an ancient reef. It’s a place full of life - including a wide variety of plants, animals, and people. The Junior Ranger program will help guide you through exploring this place by asking you to think like a park ranger.
