The National Park Service's "Green Ranger" Program for Kids Resumes at Montezuma Well
Following a break in August, the National Park Service will resume the youth program called the "Green Rangers", targeting kids between the ages of 9-12 years to learn about native plants and habitat restoration. The program is held at Montezuma Well in Rimrock, AZ. This project is an on-going effort to connect local kids to the outdoors and teach them about natural resource stewardship. Kids will be working with the park's natural resource staff to collect and plant native seeds, and help remove invasive plants in the Native Pollinator and Traditional Use Garden areas at Montezuma Well.
The "Green Rangers" program will have three sessions in September and October: Sept. 17, October 1, and October 8. All run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Kids can attend one, two, or all three sessions. The program is free. There is a maximum of 20 kids per session, enrolled on a first-come-first-serve basis. All kids must be registered prior to attending. To sign up or for more information, contact the Outreach and Youth Coordinator, Deb Decovis, at 928-821-0745 or via email at Deborah_decovis@nps.gov.
