Have what it takes to be a junior ranger?

Written by 

out jrrangerGreat Smoky Mountains National Park will celebrate the National Junior Ranger Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27.

 

Special activities will be held at the Oconaluftee Visitor Center at the park’s entrance on U.S. 441 just north of Cherokee. The events will range from guided walks to historic toy making to exhibits with animal skins, skulls and scat. Children can also earn a junior ranger patch by completing three of the activities.

National Junior Ranger Day is held during National Park Week, April 20 through April 28. This year’s theme is “Did You Know…” and most parks throughout the country will host events designed to connect children with the resources found in national parks.
