Junior Ranger Day at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park
Many local youngsters have already earned Junior Ranger patches at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, but on April 23, 2016, they may earn a special, sustainable, wooden badge to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
Kids ages 6 – 12 should pick up unique National Park Service Centennial Junior Ranger Activity Booklets at the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center, 1013 Lafayette Blvd. in Fredericksburg between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Park rangers will be on-hand to help children fulfill the necessary requirements. They will also provide insights about being a Park Ranger, and advice for aspiring rangers on how to pursue a career in the National Park Service.
The event is free.
Junior Ranger Day is the culmination of National Park Week, which runs from April 16 through April 24. Admission to all National Parks is free during this time, including no charge for the movie at the Chancellorsville Visitor Center.
