TUPELO, MS: The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to come enjoy the Read with a Ranger program at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 8, 2016, at the Parkway Visitor Center.
This month’s featured story is “My, Oh My a Butterfly.” Children will listen to the story and then explore the stages of metamorphosis from an egg to a butterfly. They will learn fun facts about butterfly communities found not only along the Natchez Trace Parkway but also in their own backyards.
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 quarter-mile hike. Read with a Ranger features a new story on the second Saturday of the month.
