Just for Kids
At the Richardson Grove Visitor Center, you’ll find hands-on displays, friendly docents, and a schedule of activities. Most of the park’s ranger- or docent-led programs (including campfire talks, nature walks, and Junior Ranger programs) start up on Memorial Day weekend and end after Labor Day. Aimed at kids age 7 through 12, these programs offer games, crafts, hiking, and exploring with other children.
