Be A Green Ranger
The Green Ranger program is for kids between the ages of 9-12 years and teaches kids about native plants and habitat restoration. This summer, the Green Ranger sessions will also have themes. June session topics will include pollinators, stewardship, educational scavenger hunts, seed collecting, native and invasive plant identification. July session topics will include nature walks to introduce wildlife, bird watching, stewardship, native and invasive plant identification. As part of this program, kids will be working with park natural resource staff at Montezuma Well to collect native seeds, learn about native and invasive plants, and assist in the Native Pollinator and Traditional Use Garden areas at Montezuma Well.
