Junior Ranger Program
June — August 2019
All day long
One of the best ways to preserve our natural spaces is to engage the next generation. That's why we offer Junior Ranger programs at all our PGE campgrounds over the summer. Every child 5 years and older who visits is invited to join. Just pick up a Park Explorer activity book from the PGE park host. Your child will learn about nature and wildlife conservation and why it's important to us all. Once they complete the book, they'll receive a certificate and an official Junior Ranger badge. It's an excellent way to build excitement about nature and conservation.
