Starting soon, kids ages 7-12 can learn about the natural world around them while exploring Texas state parks, when they participate in the Texas State Parks Junior Ranger Program. By completing activities in the Junior Ranger Journal, they will have fun, learn how to protect Texas' special wild places, and earn rewards all at the same time. More information about the program, along with participating park locations, will be available soon, so please check back!
