National Junior Ranger Day
What is it?
Come explore Olympic National Park! Learn about trail safety, plants and wildlife found in the park, and join a ranger on a walk in the woods. Earn an Olympic National Park Junior Ranger badge, or ask about limited edition badges for other topics (examples include: Wilderness Explorer, Ocean Stewards, National Historic Preservation Act, and Underwater Explorers).
This program and event is designed to help children and families connect with parks in ways that engage them in exploring, learning, and practicing stewardship.
Most programs are available for children of all ages. Special "Junior Ranger Day" certificates and badges will be available. Activities include: ranger walks, trail safety with back country horsemen of Washington, park search and rescue, camping skills demonstration, games, scavenger hunt, crafts, microscope exploration, movies, and more.
