National Park Week

Prairie Walk

Celebrate and support your national parks - get out and enjoy them during National Park Week, April 19-26! Homestead National Monument of America will have many activities both indoors and out throughout the week.

On April 26, to wrap up the week, several extra special events will be going on that you won't want to miss. This year, for the first time, we are featuring a scavenger hunt on the trails as our "Get Out, Get Fit" event. The Prairie Prowl Scavenger Hunt will challenge the whole family to trace clues and find treasures and activities around the park. You're sure to learn some neat facts and have a fun adventure! To help celebrate National Junior Ranger Day, rangers will also lead a special scavenger hunt adventure for kids at 10 a.m. See a special screening of "Yosemite: A Gathering of Spirit," a new 25 minute documentary by Ken Burns. Lastly, enjoy a rare opportunity to hike the park at night on a ranger-led Under the Stars Trail Walk!
