Saturday, April 26, is the second annual “National Junior Ranger Day.” National park sites across the country are hosting special activities to celebrate youth and the Junior Ranger Program as part of National Park Week, April 19-27.
“The Junior Ranger motto is ‘Explore, Learn, and Protect,” said Superintendent Patrick Reed. “Every national park is full of the unexpected. We have scheduled a Junior Ranger rendezvous at Mammoth Cave to celebrate the nationwide event here at home.”
At Mammoth Cave, park staff will conduct activities for young people throughout the day:
- Join a park ranger for a free, one hour, surface activity for children and their families. Participants will play fun games, using all their senses, to explore and learn about the park, and receive a special Junior Ranger Day pin and certificate. Please meet at the visitor center flagpole. Schedule: 9:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm
- Become a Junior Ranger by completing the park’s activity book, available at the visitor center free of charge everyday. After completing the necessary requirements, a certificate and badge will be awarded.
- Free National Park Service coloring books will also be available.
