Ranger Programs

The Park Service offers free Ranger Programs, talks, and hikes throughout the year.  See the Calendar for current programs.

Junior Ranger programs are designed to provide families the flexibility to see and interact with the Park at their own pace, and within the limits of their own time.  Pick up your age-specific booklet, and then complete a series of activities designed to increase kids understanding and awareness of the natural world around them.  If they share their answers with a park ranger, they can receive an official Jr. Ranger badge or patch and certificate.

The 23 minute park movie, Spirit of the Mountains, is shown daily at Beaver Meadows Visitor Center.

Evening Campground programs are presented during the summer.
