Are your kids bud­ding en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists? If they’re into frogs and ponds and pos­sums, they will love Parks Vic­to­ria’s Ju­nior Rangers pro­gram. Ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at get­ting pri­mary-aged chil­dren in­ter­ested in the bush and learn­ing about its con­ser­va­tion run all through­out the school hol­i­days at na­tional parks across Vic­to­ria. Whether they tackle the great out­doors on their own, with some self- guided fun, or join a ranger for a day out, lit­tle ones will dis­cover some of the coun­try’s great park­lands with ac­tiv­i­ties like bush I-Spy, knot ty­ing and beach­comb­ing. Ranger-led ac­tiv­i­ties are run through­out the state, in­clud­ing lo­ca­tions such as Great Ot­way Na­tional Park, Wil­sons Promon­tory Na­tional Park and Mount Buf­falo Na­tional Park. There are ac­tiv­i­ties such as ‘Rock­pool Ram­ble’ by the beach, ‘Bush De­tec­tive’ to track wild an­i­mals, and ‘Fired into Life’ to learn how rangers pre­pare for bush­fires. These days are pop­u­lar, so make sure you book in ad­vance, and don’t for­get that all chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. www.ju­nior­rangers.com.au
