The Junior Ranger program is a great way for kids ages 7 to 12 years old to discover nature and have fun in California State Parks. This activity-based program is offered in more than 70 state parks throughout California. It can include geology, ecology, history, safety, plants and wildlife, among many others. Kids may play games, hike trails, and discover animals, all the while making new friends their own age. Participants receive a logbook and badge and earn a stamp in their logbook for each activity.
