Cabrillo National Monument has developed a Climate Change Junior Ranger program activity booklet and sticker to be launched Junior Ranger Day this year.
The program was modeled after the Junior Ranger concept to cultivate future generations of park stewards. The program engages young visitors and their families to discover what climate change issues are affecting the park. Families learn simple ways they can do their part.
Games and place-based learning activities in the Climate Change Junior Ranger booklet are designed to reinforce understanding of the park’s natural resources and increase sustainable lifestyle choices.
The activities are a fun way for young visitors to get out into the park, interact with exhibits, and talk to a ranger. The goal of the program is to challenge participants to think about their own contributions to the health of the environment and encourage park stewardship.
The Climate Change Junior Ranger program enhances a family visit and expands knowledge of the park’s natural significance by connecting them to different areas in the park. Climate Change Junior Ranger was made possible by the generous contributions of Cabrillo National Monument Foundation.
Downloadable PDFs of the Climate Change Junior Ranger booklet are available on a page on the Cabrillo National Monument website.
