The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to come enjoy the Read with a Ranger program at 10:00 am on Saturday, December 10, 2016, at the Parkway Visitor Center. This month’s featured story is “Over and Under the Snow.”
Discover an entire world under your feet as you explore the many animals that stay under the snow to survive the harsh winter environment. Learn what animals on the Parkway do during the winter for food and to keep warm, then get a chance to touch some real animal furs! Hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and cookies will be available for visitors to enjoy.
Read with a Ranger is a 45-minute program that is most appropriate for ages six and under, but all ages are welcome. Participants will listen to a story, join in a fun activity, and go on an optional and easy half-mile hike. Read with a Ranger features a new story on the second Saturday of the month. To confirm the time and program scheduled each month, please the NPS website calendar at nps.gov/natr/planyourvisit/calendar.
This program is free to the public. The Parkway Visitor Center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (800) 305-7417.
