Junior Ranger Program
Although the program is focused on the 6-12 age range, visitors of all ages can participate in a Junior Ranger activity when visiting the park. While taking a guided tour of the home the visitors answer questions in the park's Jr. Ranger activity book. Upon completion, Jr. Ranger cadets will receive a badge and certificate. To get started, ask a ranger when you visit the park!
