We are HUGE fans of our National Parks and are not ashamed to admit we love the Junior Ranger Program as well. We are on a continuous mission to #FindYourPark and share it with our students. Over the past several years we have shared multiple resources for teaching about our National Parks with students.
We recently had students learn about a park and share it with their families and school. Their wonderful artwork will be shared with the wider digital community on the #FindYourPark hashtag and #StepInYourPark. Take a look at what they have learned.
We encourage you to share the Centennial Anniversary of "America's Best Idea" and join us in wishing our favorite places happy birthday!
