The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site has big plans for National Park Service Week. To begin our festivities, on April 18 we will celebrate an integral component of America's National Parks, our Junior Rangers. As the participants work to complete their Junior Ranger certification, they will be able to interact with park staff, watch blacksmithing demonstrations, participate in Ranger-led walking tours, and sign up for a prize drawing.
The week-long extravaganza will continue with any child that visits the Boyhood Farm having the opportunity to craft a pine-cone bird feeder during NPS Week in an effort to encourage our future generations to care for and protect the environment.
On April 25, the entire day has been set aside for NPS Week activities with the opportunity for participants in the Prison to Peanuts Bicycle Adventure to connect with two National Parks, Andersonville National Historic Site and Jimmy Carter National Historic Site. Later on in the evening, visitors will be able to participate in our Star(Gazing) into the Past Event at the Boyhood Farm. Visitors will be able to interact with park staff as well as local scientists as they explore the mysteries of out universe.
