2024 Junior Rangers: Week 1 – Plants & Fungi (Ages 6-10)

This summer, the Junior Ranger program is exploring a different life group every week, and Week 1 is Plants & Fungi! Programs run Monday – Wednesday from 10am to 1pm. Outdoor and weather appropriate clothing must be worn as we will be exploring the park; getting dirty and wet are both strong possibilities! Closed-toed shoes are required every day. Please don’t forget to bring a snack and a reusable water bottle, as well as apply sunscreen and bugspray before the program begins.

Pre-registration and payment are required in advance. You can register through this Eventbrite listing or by calling the Visitor Center during work hours. If you are registering more than one child, please reserve the appropriate number of spots. Payment can also be completed over the phone or in-person by stopping by at the Visitor Center.

On the first day, please arrive at least 15 minutes early as we will need the parent/guardian to fill out an emergency contact form for their child. The parent/guardian and child will also read and sign a code of conduct. An adult listed on the emergency contact form must sign the child in/out and a valid photo ID must be presented.

Program cost is $15 per child, per session.
