Santa Clara County Parks’ Junior Ranger program adds online events

The Santa Clara County Parks Junior Ranger program is ushering in the fall season with a series of free, interactive and virtual after-school sessions geared toward children ages 7-12. 

The newly expanded hybrid model—including both online and in-person sessions—features guest speakers, park tours, Q&A with Park Rangers and take-home activities that help to educate and familiarize students with local parks, according to a press release from Santa Clara County Parks.

“The Junior Ranger program emphasizes connections: It connects people with the parks, families with one another, and, most importantly, children with their environment,” said Supervisor Mike Wasserman, President of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. “By adding a virtual component to the program, our County Parks takes the theme of connection one step further, engaging with students where they’re at and connecting with a diverse new audience of future junior rangers.”
