Junior Rangers and Park Pals Program
Rangers and naturalists lead children and teens, ages 7- 14 years, through the fundamentals of environmental education and stewardship. Junior Rangers can earn three achievement awards: Basic, Advanced and Expert. Once they complete their Expert Achievement award, they begin to earn patches in our more self guided levels, such as Naturalist, Explorer, Conservationist and Guide.
The Junior Ranger Park Pals program is offered to children 3-7 years of age and is aimed at getting younger children acclimated to the outdoors and prepared for the Junior Ranger Program. Join the Park Ranger, Naturalist, or Historian for great programs and adventures throughout the park. The Park Pals program is only available at select locations. Please check with your State Park for more information.
