Junior Ranger Day
If you are lucky enough to be at the park on the third Thursday in July, join us for Junior Ranger Day!

This carnival celebrates the youth that will become the next generation of stewards of the National Parks. In previous years, the event has featured Tlingit Heritage Dancers, a junior fire fighter obstacle course, numerous hands on crafts & activities, and live birds of prey. The event usually takes place between 10am and 2pm at the Moore House.
