TUPELO, MS – Children and their families are encouraged to come enjoy the Read with a Ranger program at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 13, 2018, at the Parkway Visitor Center in Tupelo, MS. This month’s featured story is “Swamp Where Gator Hides,” a fun book that introduces young listeners to the concepts of camouflage and predator-prey interactions. Engaging cumulative rhyming teaches children about the animals that live in swamps like those along the Parkway.

Participants listen to a story, join in a fun activity and can go on an easy half-mile hike. Read with a Ranger features a new story on the second Saturday of the month.
