This spring, War in the Pacific National Historical Park, along with non-profit partner Pacific Historic Parks, will host the River Ranger Program. This free, dynamic, program teaches river ecology to children in 3rd and 4th grades. Through demonstrations, hands-on activities, lively group discussions, and personal interactions with plants and wildlife, youths are encouraged to look closer at their relationship with the environment and build on their knowledge of the natural world. The program provides a fun way to learn about the plants and animals that are part of a river ecosystem and helps youth understand what they can do to protect them.

Three morning-long sessions will be held on Saturdays, April 30, May 7, & 21, 2016. Applicants may choose one session. Each session provides a number of educational activities about Guam’s rivers, the special value they hold, and how to help protect them. Activities require hands-on exploring of the riverbanks and the plants and animals that live there.

Be a part of this exciting free educational program that encourages youths to tune their senses to the awesome river world at their national park!

Applicants must register at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in advance. The visitor center is located just outside the Naval Base Guam main gate and is open daily from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. Find out more about the park by visiting www.nps.gov/wapa.
