As part of National Park Week at Chickasaw National Recreation Area, young visitors will have an opportunity to join park rangers to celebrate National Junior Ranger Day. Participants will learn how wildland firefighters maintain healthy ecosystems through a series of activities on Saturday, April 23, from 9:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m., at the Travertine Nature Center parking area. Participants will earn an official Junior Wildland Firefighter badge. The event is free and participants may come and go.
