Junior Ranger Naturalist Program
World Ranger Day 2018
OSMP Ranger Naturalists were honored to celebrate World Ranger Day with Boulder County Open Space rangers & our Junior Ranger Naturalists! World Ranger Day celebrates the critical work Rangers do to protect the world’s natural & cultural treasures, & commemorates Rangers killed or injured in the line of duty.
The Junior Ranger Naturalist Program returns for another summer in 2018! This youth program is geared toward high school age youth. The program is centered around service learning, providing customer service to the visitors of OSMP, and natural resource protection. This exciting four-week program (July 16 - Aug. 9, 2018) is an excellent opportunity to learn about natural resource stewardship, hone outdoor skills, and explore careers as an outdoor professional. Training includes CPR/First Aid, search and rescue, naturalist, outdoor survival, wildland fire ecology, leadership and public service, natural resource/visitor protection and enforcement, wildlife ecology, and customer service. Junior Ranger Naturalists will work with Rangers from the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks in partnership with Boulder County Parks and Open Space Rangers. Upon successful completion of the program participants will earn a Certificate in Outdoor Leadership.
This program is full for 2018.
