Junior Ranger Program
The Junior Ranger Program has included local teens in priority natural resource management projects since 1965. Junior Rangers learn job skills, discover Open Space and Mountain Parks, perform in a team environment, and engage in stewardship building opportunities. Motivated teens work together to make a difference for the land and their community.
Junior Rangers are teens ages 14 to 17 who are selected through a competitive application and interview process. They serve for one of two sessions during the summer completing a variety of parks maintenance, clean-up and land restoration projects.
Junior Rangers join a proud legacy of service to our Open Space and Mountain Parks.
