Jump Into the Park _ Jr. Ranger Day

  • The Park at Flat Rock

Rangers from the Sandburg Home will jump into the Park at Flat Rock for a fun day of activities for the whole family. The event will be held at the Park at Flat Rock on Highland Lake Road from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and all events are free and open to the public. Ongoing activity stations include a nature’s hide and seek trail walk, hands-on activities to learn about bugs and pollination with a live bee hive, a writing station with poetry and postcards, conservation craft-making, a wildlife show and even the Sandburg goats will jump into the park at a station to learn about where milk comes from.

The reptile wildlife show is scheduled for 1:00 – 2:00 pm at the pavilion featuring Alan Cameron and Earthshine naturalist Steve O'Neil.

Visitors young and not-so-young can pick up an activity “passport” when they arrive at the park and once they visit at least four activity stations and get a stamp they will earn special Junior Ranger prizes.
