This spring, War in the Pacific National Historical Park, along with non-profit partner Pacific Historic Parks and partners from Guam Department of Agriculture, will host the River Ranger Program. This free, fun, and 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.

Three morning-long sessions will be held on Saturdays, March 18, March 25, & April 1, 2017. Applicants may choose only one session that provides a number of educational activities about Guam’s rivers. 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 registration period is from February 20 to March 13, 2017. The visitor center is located just outside the Naval Base Guam main gate and is open daily from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. Download a registration packet at our Youth Programs page at www.nps.gov/wapa.
