VIRTUAL JUNIOR RANGERS
Sessions run October 25th-November 3rd
All Santa Clara County youth ages 7-12 are invited to join park staff after school via Zoom for Virtual Junior Rangers. A series of 40-minute Junior Ranger sessions take place at 3pm and 4pm every Tuesday and Thursday from October 25-November 3, 2022. Fall season topics include Bats, Creepy Crawlies, Astronomy, and Basic First Aid. For a complete list of topics, check out the program flyer HERE.
Participants can join individually from their own homes or as a group through after-school programs and clubs. All that’s needed is access to a screen and reliable internet connection. All sessions take place in real time with special guest speakers dispatching from a different park location each session. The virtual programs are highly interactive with plenty of opportunities for Q & A with park rangers. For group leaders interested in signing up multiple youth, please reach out directly to [email protected] for more information.
Participants who complete 3 or more sessions will earn the Junior Ranger badge and are invited to gather together in person for a fun Junior Ranger Family Day celebration on Saturday November 5th at Martial Cottle Park from 10-11:30 am. This event will feature a variety of hands-on activities, games, and a chance to meet many of the park staff they saw on Zoom. The event will conclude with a special ceremony in which Junior Rangers will receive their badges and certificates.
Junior Rangers unable to attend the in-person Family Day event will receive their badges in the mail.
