Park Programs August 2014

 

Join park rangers for a variety of fun and interesting interpretive programs. Park rangers will lead special guided tours of park sites and share personal stories of those who fought in the Pacific War. Programs provide visitors an opportunity to learn about park resources, the people we honor, and how events of the past still influence us today. For specific program details, please see the attached schedule of events.


All events are free and open to the public. Most programs occur outdoors at different locations and vary in length from thirty minutes to one hour. Most hikes are moderate and short but traverse slippery and steep terrain, so wear appropriate footwear and attire. Visitors are encouraged to bring water, umbrellas, and insect repellent. In the event of inclement weather, programs may be delayed or cancelled. For more information or questions on specific programs, call 333-4050 or visit www.nps.gov/wapa.
