Tucson, Arizona - This holiday season, give a child the gift of discovery. On November 28, WNPA will participate in Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving following Black Friday. WNPA’s goal is to raise $8,000 to help 8,000 children become Junior Rangers.
The National Park Service (NPS) Junior Ranger program helps kids get interested in parks from a young age. More than 200 NPS sites offer a Junior Ranger program. Kids complete a Junior Ranger activity booklet, learning about the park and environmental stewardship through fun, educational tasks like scavenger hunts, mazes, and short answer questions. Upon completion, they receive a Junior Ranger badge and certificate to show that they’re part of the NPS “family”!
WNPA provides aid to many parks’ Junior Ranger programs. Parks use these funds to purchase badges, provide activities, and design and print the Junior Ranger activity booklets. Please consider making a charitable donation to WNPA this Giving Tuesday to help us continue serving Junior Rangers. Stay tuned to WNPA’s social media channels for more details, including a matching donation opportunity.
