The Sitka National Historical Park will offer a fun-filled afternoon of Junior Ranger activities from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, at the park for children and their families. Participants can explore the temperate rain forest during the forest discovery program, create a rain forest inspired headband, and create clay animals and tracks. Children will have the opportunity to earn a Junior Ranger badge, patch or sticker.
The program will take place at Sitka National Historical Park’s Visitor Center at 106 Metlakatla Street. Please note this is a family activity and all children must be supervised.
Sitka National Historical Park’s Junior Ranger event is one of many events that encourages the next generation of park users to find their park.
