A one-day junior ranger program for children ages 6 to 12 is being held this Friday, July 15, at Saguaro National Park West.
The event, which runs from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., includes a variety of fun, hands-on activities such as hiking, exploring the great outdoors, looking for animals and their tracks, searching for secret stuff on a scavenger hunt, games and crafts.
The day camp will be held at the park's environmental education center, near the Red Hills Visitor Center. The visitor center is located at 2700 North Kinney Road, approximately two miles northwest of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
Fee for the camp is $10.
As space is limited, advanced registration is required. For additional information, or to register a child for the camp, contact Ranger Adrian Garcia at 733-8614, or by e-mail at SNPandKids@gmail.com.
