Hope, AR – The staff of President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site invites you to attend Junior Ranger Day on Friday, July 23rd between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This come-and-go event for the entire family will be held on the lawn near the visitor center and is free of charge.
Earn a collectible patch and a Junior Ranger badge by attending programs hosted by the Park Rangers, taking a guided tour of the birthplace home, and completing a Junior Ranger booklet! One interactive program focuses on learning about clean drinking water and action President Clinton took to protect clean drinking water for Americans. Another program explores President Clinton’s family tree and the important role these loved ones had in shaping his future. Everyone is invited to complete a family tree chart and think about the people who influence each of us.
Junior Ranger Day is held in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the site. On April 16th, 2011 the National Park Service welcomed President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site as the 394th national park site.
The anniversary celebration continues! Mark your calendar for August 19th when Ranger Ali presents A Very Jazzy Decade to celebrate the birthday of President Clinton. This saxophone jazz performance features the accompaniment of Park Rangers from New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park (virtually) from inside the Birthplace Home. Find this special program posted on the park webpage and social media pages.
