Junior Ranger Program: Digging History

Do you like to dig in the dirt, figure out stories from clues, or learn about the past? These are all things archaeologists do—maybe you are one too! All park resources are protected by law, and Parkway staff work closely with professional archaeologists to monitor and protect cultural sites.

The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to “Digging History,” a Junior Ranger program to be held at the Parkway Visitor Center at Oct. 19 10 a.m.  Join a park ranger for this 45-minute hands-on program to learn about the important role archaeology plays in telling the story of the Parkway. This program is ideal for children seven to 12 years old but everyone is welcome.

The Parkway Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call 1-800-305-7417.

America’s federal lands and waters are living classrooms. Make learning come alive by participating in Every Kid in Park. All current fourth graders and their families can visit national parks, monuments, seashores and more for free. Learn more at www.everykidinapark.gov
