Junior Ranger Program

For Kids Tryon Creek State Natural Area Start at Nature Center Next happening None scheduled

Fun for kids ages 6-12!  Receive your mission from a park ranger and then complete it by exploring on your own in the park. Your mission will help you learn how to protect our natural and cultural resources, including plants and animals.  Participating will help Junior Rangers earn their badge, patch, and certificate! Parents must participate in the exploration with their children.  All parents/guardians must sign a permission slip before children participate.
