The Natchez Trace Parkway invites children and their families to come enjoy the Read with a Ranger program at 10:00 am on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at the Parkway Visitor Center. This month’s featured story is “The Prairie that Nature Built.” Discover the plants and animals that make a prairie community flourish.
