Junior Rangers

Join the fun and excitement this summer with the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area Junior Rangers Program! Kids ages 5-11 are invited to join us to discover the incredible natural wonders in our beautiful Arkansas River Valley with our naturalist. Through wildlife habits, habitats, science investigations, games, arts, crafts, and play we will explore the world around us. Parents are welcome to tag along! We may take small exploration excursions around the park so sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and water are essential!
