GREAT FALLS – People are invited to join the Rangers at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park this summer for 10 hands-on Junior Ranger programs exploring a variety of topics.
Park officials said in a press release that the free programs will be from 10 a.m. to noon every Thursday from June 17 to August 19. The programs are open to all ages but designed especially for children 6 to 12 years old. Participation is limited to 25 students per class and each child must be accompanied by a tutor throughout the program.
Participants who participate in two Junior Ranger programs are eligible to take the Junior Ranger Pledge and receive their badge.
