Junior Park Ranger
After becoming a junior naturalist, kids can move up to being a Junior Park Ranger by working through a Junior Ranger Activity Booklet. The full-page booklet is 20 pages long and has activities about plants, animals, fossils, geology, water resources, sounds, and stargazing, as well as ranger duties, cartography, and a map exercise for Millbrook Village.
