Those wishing to participate in the day's festivities should first pick up a Junior Ranger Book from the park ranger or volunteer at the front desk at Plains High School (PHS).The Junior Ranger Book is full of information to encourage children to learn more about our 39th President, PHS, the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm, as well as the Plains Depot, which served as his 1976 Campaign Headquarters. Upon completion of the Junior Ranger Book, participants will receive a bag full of surprises and register for the Grand Prize to be chosen on April 26, 2015. The participant will also be sworn-in as a Junior Ranger, which is a wonderful photo opportunity for the family.

As part of National Park Service Week, starting on April 18, 2015, all children who visit the Boyhood Farm will have the opportunity to make a pine cone bird feeder. With Spring coming, the birds will just love them.

We hope to meet you there and until the abide by the Junior Ranger Motto: "Explore, Learn, and Protect."
