Lake Mead National Recreation Area invites families to join rangers for the 13th annual Junior Ranger Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 27 at the Lake Mead Visitor Center. Junior Ranger Day is held annually during National Park Week to inspire the nation’s youth to enjoy, learn about and protect natural resources.
This free event will offer fun, interactive stations with kids’ activities that focus on nature and water safety. Rangers will share information about career opportunities within the park service, and there will be K-9 demonstrations, as well.
Smokey Bear, Mojave Max and Coastie, the talking robot boat, will be on hand to add to the fun. When kids complete their activities, they will be sworn in as Junior Rangers and receive a Junior Ranger badge and certificate. In addition, all fourth graders will receive an ‘Every Kid in a Park‘ pass that grants them and three guests free admission to more than 2,000 federal public lands. A full handout of all you’ll need to know can be downloaded HERE.
