The Junior Ranger Program is a great way to get your kids outdoors and into a free, safe, and fun program! Programs take place in several of our County Parks for kids ages 9-11. Junior rangers explore park history and nature through outdoor adventures with park staff. Students who successfully complete the program earn a badge and certificate.

What are people saying about this program?

“In the junior ranger program, I felt like I was with everyone else, and not alone.  I was happy being with new friends and with nature.  My life changed through the course of the program.  It made me feel like I was more involved.  When I wasn’t doing anything I felt lazy, tired and bored. And now I feel energetic and amazing.  The program helped me so much.” – 2017 Junior Ranger

“I wanted you to know what a life changing experience Jr Rangers has been for my son and how he is carrying those experiences forward with him.  Ranger Mike and the Jr Ranger program has made such a positive impact in my son’s and our family’s life, enriching it beyond expectations.” – 2017 Junior Ranger Parent
