Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial invites Junior Rangers for several upcoming Junior Ranger Day programs. Junior Rangers events are focused on hands-on learning and fun. There will be an activity every last Saturday of the month, from April to July, on various topics such as 1820s pioneer life, our environment, and Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood in Indiana. Are you looking for something fun to do this summer? Come and join us!!

The first Junior Ranger event will take place on April 28 at 2:00 pm Central Time at the Lincoln Living Historical Farm. The program, “Give it a Whorl,” focuses on the very necessary pioneer chore, spinning. Learn to prepare, card and spin wool using a drop spindle. Park volunteers will also demonstrate how to use spinning wheels to show the various ways pioneers would spin wool to make clothing.

The next Junior Ranger event will take place at the Memorial Building at 2:00 pm Central Time on Saturday, May 26, and is entitled “On the Move.” All events are open to the public and are free of charge.

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial preserves the Indiana farm where Abraham Lincoln lived for 14 years -- from 1816 to 1830, and the site where his mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, is buried. The Memorial is located eight miles south of Interstate 64 on Indiana Highway 162, adjacent to Lincoln State Park.
