The Shenandoah Valley invites you to learn about its rich heritage. From Native Americans who first shaped the land, to pioneers of this frontier. This fertile area became one of the most important wheat producing regions of the entire South. The Valley also witnessed some of the most dramatic events of the Civil War, including the Battle of Cedar Creek, a decisive battle on October 19th, 1864 which led to a Union victory.
Junior Ranger programs are a great way to get kids and their families, interested and involved in their national parks.
Our new Junior Ranger program is designed for children, ages 5-13. Children can earn a Junior Ranger badge and certificate by completing activities contained within the Junior Ranger booklet. 16 activities take young visitors through exhibits and self-guided walks and tours throughout the park. Once kids complete the appropriate activities, rangers and park volunteers will issue their badge and certificate.
