Theodore Roosevelt National Park is recruiting Junior Rangers for an afternoon and evening of adventure and discovery. Kids ages 5 through 12 and their families are invited to the last Junior Ranger Family Fun Day of the summer season on Saturday, August 28. Participants will learn about the night sky and explore our solar system.

The fun begins at the South Unit Visitor Center at 3:30 p.m. MDT and will continue through the evening. Kids will explore the craters of the moon, take a planet hike, hear stories about the stars from past civilizations, and view the summer’s brightest stars and planets. The adventure will end at 10:00 p.m. with a Junior Ranger a graduation ceremony.

“People have been fascinated with the stars and planets since the beginning of time,” said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. “Night sky exploration is one of the best ways to enjoy our national parks, and we are excited to share this with children and their families. This event will be a great introduction to astronomy for Junior Rangers of all ages.”

Children must be accompanied by an adult for the day’s activities and should bring a lunch, water, insect repellent, sunscreen, and a light jacket. For further information, please call the South Unit Visitor Center at 701-623-4730 x3417.
