Become a Jr. Ranger!
Jr. Rangers are ages 9-11 (usually 4th-5th grade).
Jr. Ranger Programs run in several County Parks each spring and fall.
Registration is limited to 20 kids per park.
Jr. Rangers usually meet once a week for two hours, four weeks in a row (Schedules may vary).
Jr. Rangers may participate in this program only once. (Sorry, no repeats.)
On the first day each Jr. Ranger is given a free T-Shirt and logbook. Each day they meet, Jr. Rangers explore park resources through hands-on activities and outdoor adventures with park staff. Jr. Ranger badges and certificates are awarded based on attendance and good behavior. Graduating Jr. Rangers may also be invited to a free overnight campout with program staff.
