Happy National Park Week! National Park Week is celebrated every April for a week. National Park Week is a time to explore about these amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, volunteer, and find your park!
Each day this week has a theme and today is National Junior Ranger Day! The junior ranger program allows people of all ages to “explore, learn, and protect” your national parks by doing some activities to earn their badge. Each park offers different activities or programs.
(And yes, they really mean all ages as I did the program at a national park as an adult and even before having kids as I thought it was so cool!)
I highly recommend checking this program out the next time you visit a cool place within our national park system!
Since you can’t make to a national park right now, you can become a webranger online! Click here for the web site!
In addition, you can become a junior ranger by learning about the importance of sounds outside. Click here for the packet. Once you complete it, you can get a digital high five. See the last page for the direction.
Cheers to the start of National Park Week!
