Youth Art

 Earth Day Art Contest 2023

We received 200+ entries for our third Youth Art Contest to celebrate Earth Day and had a fun time choosing the winning artwork.

These creative pieces of art will be featured in posters to be displayed at County Parks this year and winners will receive a prize (parents/guardians have already been contacted).

Bark Ranger 

We know many park visitors enjoy Santa Clara County Parks with their furry friends in tow. BARK Ranger was developed as a way to celebrate our four-legged visitors and promote responsible dog use in our parks.

Attend a dog-friendly program or visit a participating County Parks visitor center to learn more about BARK Ranger, and get your pup badged as a BARK Ranger today!
