Junior Ranger Day 2008

On Saturday, May 3, 2008, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park will host Junior Ranger Day activities from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. All activities will take place at the battlefield’s Visitor Center. Junior Ranger Day is a national event in conjunction with National Park Week that encourages youth to visit and learn at our nation’s federal park sites. Kids will have the chance to earn special, limited edition Junior Ranger badges and certificates after completing a junior ranger day worksheet. Other activities for the day include free face painting, Civil War-era games, a costume contest, art competition, and photos with Kenny, the Kennesaw Bison. Come out to win prizes and have a great time. The day is sure to be fun and, best of all, it’s free!
