TUPELO, MS - The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to “Beavers: Making a Splash” a special Junior Ranger program held at the Parkway Visitor Center on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at 10:00 am. Beavers are incredible animals that can turn the tiniest streams into flooded wetlands. Join a park ranger for this 45-minute program to learn how beavers are perfectly adapted for creating their own water habitats and swimming in the wetlands. Participants will make a craft beaver to take home. This program is free and ideal for children seven to 12 years old, but everyone is welcome.
The Parkway Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (800) 305-7417.
