War in the Pacific National Historical Park and our partners Pacific Historic Parks invite youths to "Find Your Park" on Guam and learn about our programs. This May, we will host the first River Ranger Program. This free, dynamic program teaches river ecology to children in 3rd and 4th grades. Through demonstrations, hands-on activities, lively group discussions, and personal interactions with plants and wildlife, youths are encouraged to look closer at their relationship with the environment and build on their knowledge of the natural world. The program is a fun way to learn about the plants and animals that are part of a river ecosystem, and provides youths the opportunity to learn what they can do to protect these resources.

Three morning sessions will be held on Saturdays,May 2, 9, &16, 2015. Applicants may choose one session. Each session provides a number of activities about Guam's rivers, the special value they hold, and how to help protect them. Activities require hands-on exploring of the riverbanks and plants and animals that live there.

Be a part of this exciting free educational program that encourages youths to tune their senses to the awesome river world at their national park!

Applicants must register at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in advance. The visitor center is open daily from9 am –4:30 pm and is located outside the Naval Base Guam main gate. Click here for the application.
