Junior Ranger Academy

1:00p to 3:00p
Tue, December 19, 2023
Lisa Cole
(210) 688-9055, x2010

Explore the trails at Government Canyon with a ranger and earn your Junior Ranger badge.

Take a hike, make wildlife observations, use magnifiers to search for decomposers, and learn to Leave No Trace as we complete activities that will result in young rangers being sworn in as TPWD Junior Rangers. We’ll walk about one mile and work together on activities in our journals. This activity is best for 6-12 year-olds. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets please.

This activity meets at the Group Picnic Pavilion near the Visitor Center.

Registration is NOT required for this activity. Though the event is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area do apply. We often fill to capacity. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass. There is often a line at the fee booth; arrive early to get to your activity on time.

Dress for hiking outdoors. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, bug spray and a hat are recommended. Bring at least 2 liters of water per person and a snack.

This program is weather-dependent and subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA's main office at 210-688-9055, or go to the GCSNA webpage, Instagram, or Facebook.
