Washoe County parks looking for Junior Snow Rangers

Children ages 6-14 can sign up for Washoe County’s Junior Snow Ranger program, a free, do-it-yourself winter nature adventure with self-guided hikes and activities to help children learn more about nature in the winter and how to cope with winter weather.

To get started, pick up a booklet from rangers at Lazy 5, Rancho San Rafael, Bartley Ranch, Bowers Mansion, Davis Creek or Galena Creek regional parks. Once the booklet has been completed, children meet with a ranger to talk about what they’ve learned.

Participants who complete their booklet by March 31 will receive a Junior Snow Ranger certificate and an invitation to the End of Winter Party. To have a booklet mailed to you, call 828-6612.
