Come to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve on Saturday morning, April 15, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to become one of our Tallgrass Prairie Junior Rangers. Program is free of charge.


Children will have the opportunity to try their hands using some “old school” technology known as Morse Code and HAM radio technology. Other topics include prairie animals, a Food Web, and old time chores.

There are three sessions, with the first beginning at 9 a.m. and second and third sessions beginning again at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. During each hour-long session, children rotate through different stations learning about the natural and cultural history of the preserve. At the end of each session, children gather for a group swearing in ceremony and receive their special Junior Ranger patch and badge. Children will become part of an elite group of National Park Service Junior Rangers.
