Junior Ranger Day, Migratory Bird Day bring family fun to Schoodic



ACADIA NAT’L PARK — The Schoodic Institute and Acadia National Park will host National Junior Ranger Day and International Migratory Bird Day at the Schoodic Education and Research Center Campus on Saturday, May 16, from 1-4 p.m.

Junior Ranger Day includes games and activity stations for children 12 and under (accompanied by an adult) as well as exhibits and citizen science demonstrations for all ages. Festivities start at the Moore Auditorium.

In addition to the junior ranger festivities, participants can celebrate the return of birds after a very long and snow-filled winter. “Birds bring renewed color and a riot of song to liven up our neighborhoods and surrounding fields and woods this time of year,” said Schoodic Institute Bird Ecology Program Director Seth Benz.

Join in the fun at interesting explorer stations: test your knowledge of migration and pollinator facts, plant a Monarch garden, try your skills as a fire fighter, challenge a friend to the Animal Olympics and more at this free field day full of family activities.
