In 2013, an expanded Junior Ranger program is allowing even more children to participate and learn about the natural world. More Junior Ranger programs will be offered in Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows, and the program is being expanded into Wawona and Glacier Point during the busy summer season.
These programs encourage outdoor exploration, as well as a love of national parks and a healthy lifestyle from an early age. By participating in ranger-led nature walks and completing environmental-activity workbooks, kids can earn their Junior Ranger badge. This year, plastic badges are being replaced with sustainably produced wooden badges that will serve as a model for other national parks.
Thanks to your continued support, there are more programs, more rangers and more children learning about and connecting with the outdoors and Yosemite.
