Contact: Dan Brown, 671-333-4051Park Programs November 2014
Join park rangers this month for a variety of fun and interesting interpretive programs. Park rangers will lead special guided tours of park sites, share personal stories of those who fought in the Pacific War, and offer a film about national parks across the country. 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 repellant. In the event of inclement weather, programs may be delayed or cancelled.
Visitors can also hear from a park ranger with the park’s cell phone audio tour, available 24 hours a day. Tour stops are located at ten points throughout the park. Dial 866-418-3963 to listen to the tour in English or Japanese.
For questions on specific programs, call 333-4050 or visit www.nps.gov/wapa for more information and a map of park units.
