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.
The Green Rangers program will require a commitment of at least two Saturdays out of the six offered. The sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the following dates:
Each session will have up to 15 kids enrolled on a first-come-first-serve basis. Kids must be signed in with the youth coordinator (Email Us or 928-821-0745) prior to attending. There is no cost for the program.
This program is an ongoing National Park Service effort to connect local kids to the outdoors and teach them about natural resource stewardship. Montezuma Well is located in Rimrock, AZ and is a unit of Montezuma Castle National Monument. We hope that you join us at the Well and make this program a success!
