Ranger-Guided Activities

A ranger stands on a stage in front of a small group of visitors near a pond. There is a large park map hanging next to him.
From late spring through fall, rangers offer a variety of programs, including short talks and guided walks.

During COVID-19 rangers are staffing outdoor information stations at each visitor center (year-round at Salt Pond and May 1-October 31 at Province Lands). Stop by to ask a question, pick up a brochure, check out our self-serve info boards, or ask about becoming a Junior Ranger. Hours are 9-4:30 daily, and 9-5 beginning May 1. In addition, there are outdoor exhibits located at many seashore sites.

Ranger and volunteer-guided programs are generally offered from May through October. Settings include trails, beaches, historic buildings, and on the grounds of the Salt Pond and Province Lands visitor centers. Topics are as varied as seashore resources, including beach and saltmarsh ecology, maritime history, the area's art and literature legacies, wildlife, plants, and the First People. During COVID-19, programs are limited and reservations are required for most of these activities. For advance planning, check the on-line calendar, and upon arrival, consult program flyers posted at visitor centers, and ask the visitor center rangers about any pop-up programs that may be occurring on that day.
