Kick off National Park Week by celebrating National Junior Ranger Day at Fort McHenry!

Have you ever wanted to walk in a Park Ranger's footsteps? Join us for the special 'Ranger 101' program and become a steward of your national parks! Kids of all ages are welcome to join a ranger for a walk around Fort McHenry and explore the site's history. Junior Rangers will learn to identify and protect the historical and natural resources that make the park so special and will also have a chance to wear signature pieces of a Park Ranger uniform! At the end of the program kids will receive their very own Junior Ranger badge and be sworn in as honorary protectors of Fort McHenry NMHS and other national parks!

Two programs will be offered, beginning at 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm at the Chesapeake Bay map outside of the visitor center. The program and materials are free and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Registration is not required. For more information please call 410-962-4290. We hope to see you there!
