(KDKZ-TV) The annual Junior Ranger Day event at Ozark National Scenic Riverways will be held at Alley Spring on Friday, May 4th.

Each year, students and youth organizations come together with educators from natural resource agencies for an exciting day of outdoor education exhibits and activities.

Students from area schools will begin arriving at 9 a.m.  A brief welcoming ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. and then classes will rotate through a variety of engaging activity stations until approximately 2 p.m. Participants should bring a picnic lunch and dress to spend the day outdoors.

Activities, displays, and presentations are targeted toward 4th and 5th grade students.  Homeschool students and scout groups will find this event to be a wonderful educational opportunity as well.

The general public is also welcome to attend.

Schools and large groups should RSVP by calling Dave Tobey at 573-323-8093.
