YOUNGSTERS can join Parks Victoria’s junior ranger program over summer to find out about national parks and reserves with a ranger.

Activities include minibeast discovery walks, signing up as a wildlife detective, being a flora explorer or going on a rockpool ramble.

The junior ranger program aims to get children aged 6-12 and their families exploring and appreciating the plants, animals and environments of the state’s parks.

Those who can’t make it to one of these activities this summer can go to the ‘make and do’ section online at to download information to take to parks or reserves.

There is also a junior ranger mailing list.

Junior rangers activities are free. Book at or call 13 1963.
