Join Lowell National Historical Park on National Junior Ranger Day and become a Junior Ranger! "Explore, Learn, and Protect!" The Junior Ranger motto is recited by people around the country when they visit any one of the over 400 National Park Service sites. Join us in Lowell to learn about what makes our Park and city special and unique. Participate in the activities, complete the activity book, or take a tour to earn your very own Junior Ranger badge!
You can stop by the Visitor Center anytime from 9 a.m until 5 p.m. to pick up your Junior Ranger activity book. In honor of National Park Week, the Boott Cotton Mills Museum will be fee-free for all to visit and explore.
There will be special Junior Ranger activities, including a Downtown Scavenger Hunt available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the LNHP Visitor Center. Drop-in any time to do these special activities!
The 2:30 Mill and Trolley tour will have a special Junior Ranger focus that day. Travel on the trolley and explore the historic Suffolk Mill with a Park Ranger! The tour is free, but reservations are recommended. Please call (978) 970-5000 to make your reservation for this tour.
All are welcome to participate!
