Junior Ranger Cave Science Family Programs with Ranger Valerie Martin

Posted on April 11, 2017 – 6:24 pm

The Portage Lake District Library will host “Junior Ranger Cave Science Family Programs,” a series of family programs presented by Isle Royale National Park Ranger Valerie Martin.


Children and their families will discover their National Parks and kids will earn their Junior Ranger Cave Scientist badge in this three program series. These programs offer adventures and activities that are suitable for families and kids age five to twelve. Programs include a short presentation followed by hands-on activities.


The programs are as follows:


Thursday, April 13, 6:30 p.m.

Cave Investigators

Kids will test their speleologist skills, investigate cave formation, and explore some fantastic features found in their national parks.


Thursday, April 20, 6:30 p.m.

Cavern Creatures

Kids will head underground to investigate the lives of cave-dwelling animals where they will test their cave super senses and design their own cavern critter.


Thursday, April 27, 6:30 p.m.

Underworld Explorers

People have been visiting caves for thousands of years. Kids will meet some of these cave explorers from the past and present and check out different types of caves – even a cave in a volcano.


Valerie Martin has been a National Park Service Ranger and educator for over twenty years. She has spent seventeen summers sharing the wonders of Isle Royale with others.


Library presentations are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
