Junior Ranger Program
We believe the best way to preserve our public lands is to educate our local youth on the pivotal role they can play in preservation. At O76, youth can complete different activities at their own pace, send in their activity sheets for review, and accumulate points to receive Junior Ranger Rewards and an official Junior Ranger Certificate from Outdoor 76. Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 5 to 13, but we encourage all ages to participate. We’re ready to HAVE FUN and LEARN!
Not only can Junior Rangers earn points from activity sheets, but they can also continue earning additional rewards by participating in a variety of O76 approved outdoor activities. To earn additional rewards, complete each outdoor activity 5 times, and then document it by listing location, date and time.
Redeemable outdoor activities include:
- Forest Fun: Play outside in the woods, play disc golf, build a fort, fly a kite, help plant a garden or dig for gems in the soil.
- Aquablazer: Fish, swim, canoe, kayak, paddle board, ride in a boat, snorkel or take a walk along a creek / river.
- Trailblazer: hike, bike, ride a horse, or walk your dog along a trail.
- Stewardship: Help pick up trash, remove invasive plants, recycle bottles and cans from your home, plant trees or help the local forest service with trail maintenance.
- Camp Out: Spend the night outdoors on a trail, in a campground, in a tent or an RV.
