Junior Angler Program

Calling all Junior Rangers!

Keweenaw National Historical Park and park partners host a series of fun and interactive Junior Angler events during summer months. These Junior Angler programs give junior rangers from our diverse communities a chance to learn new fishing skills, explore the mining history and natural resources of the area, and protect these sites for future generations.

The Junior Angler events include:

  • Fish with a Ranger days

  • Annual Kid’s Fishing Derby

  • Fishing discovery education programs

  • Junior Angler fishing day camps

Check the park calendar for more information about dates and locations for specific events. Check out this website to explore more Junior Ranger fishing programs.

Project Sisu

Project Sisu occurred during the summer of 2013 and was intended to help area youth find sisu in themselves, each other, and the local community. This map is a result of their work. In the summer of 2016, our GRACE interns created an interactive web version of the map.
