Calling all 3rd and 4th graders for the River Ranger Program!
In April, War in the Pacific National Historical Park, along with non-profit partner Pacific Historic Parks, will host the River Ranger Program. This free, dynamic program teaches river ecology to children in 3rd and 4th grades. Through demonstrations, interactive activities, lively group discussions, and personal interactions with river plants and wildlife, youths are encouraged to look closer at their relationship with the environment and build upon their knowledge of the natural world. The program provides a fun way to learn about the plants and animals that are part of a river ecosystem and helps youth understand what they can do to protect them.
There are three Saturday morning sessions to choose from; April 7, 21 or 28, 2018. Applicants may choose one session. Each session provides educational 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 the plants and animals that live there.
Be a part of this exciting free educational program that encourages youths to tune their senses into the awesome river world at their national park!
Applicants must register at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in advance. The visitor center is located on Marine Corps Drive, near US Naval Base Guam and is open daily from 9am – 4:30pm. Find out more about the park by visiting http://www.nps.gov/wapa.
