JEWEL CAVE NATIONAL MONUMENT, S.D. (AP) - Jewel Cave National Monument in western South Dakota is hosting a Junior Ranger Day this weekend as part of a series of events in celebration of the 99th anniversary of the National Park Service.

Saturday’s Junior Ranger Day will focus on bats and some of their unique characteristics. Children will learn about the species of bats that inhabit Jewel Cave and take part in some hands-on activities.

The Explore the World of Bats program is geared toward children ages 3 through 12. Youth participants will receive a 2015 Junior Ranger Badge and certificate.

The Park Service turns 99 years old Aug. 25. That day, Jewel Cave will offer guided cave tours for free.
