During the summer, join a ranger for a guided tour, short talk, or evening campfire program to learn more about the natural and cultural history of the park's incredible landscape. Below is a general description of the types of Ranger Programs offered throughout the park.
To find out program topics and guided hike and ranger walk locations, view our calendar of events, or find a copy of the week's program schedule posted throughout the park when you arrive. Programs are scheduled about 2 weeks in advance.
Please note: The ranger-led programs listed below will not take place during the Dakota Nights Astronomy Festival, September 7, 8, and 9, 2018. Instead, please join us at one of the many activities scheduled for the festival.
