We are very happy to be back on the road in 2021 with the National Parks Expedition Challenge. We have taken a few months off and have our calendar packed with fun adventures this year. We had an extraordinary time at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park this past weekend.
Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. When visiting, you will actually step back in time as you walk on cobblestone roads, visit historic storefronts, explore the battlefields, and soak up as much history as you can by listening to their highly informed rangers. You will find Harpers Ferry NHP on the banks of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers—where Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia meet. There are over 4,000 acres of parkland, including battlefields. You can find living history demonstrations, attend workshops, or enjoy a guided tour. While we were there, Ranger George spent several hours with us, sharing his love of the park and history. He also integrated science into our virtual field trip so we could issue a STEM Challenge. We hope that after you watch the virtual field trip (posting soon), you will take time to get out in the parks and explore. Harpers Ferry should be at the top of your list.
