LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The Junior Ranger program for children ages 7 through 12 will continue Wednesday through Saturday, 10 to 11 a.m. through Sept. 4, at Clear Lake State Park, 5300 Soda Bay Road, Kelseyville.
There is no pre-enrollment or cost for participation.
Children should arrive at the visitor center auditorium by 10 a.m. for each session.
The summer session began in July and has already given 212 children exciting nature experiences in the park.
Lake County parents are encouraged to bring their children to the park to join with children of park visitors for this fun way to learn about the natural world in a setting not available in ordinary classrooms.
Each day participants will explore Lake County’s extraordinary natural and cultural resources. Daily programs vary.
As children discover the wonders of their local environment, they will earn awards for their accomplishments. They also will get a peek at what state park rangers have to know to protect our beautiful state parks.
Clear Lake State Park Interpretive Association funds the Junior Ranger program. If you have questions about the program, please call Val Nixon at 707-279-2267.
The visitor center will open from noon to 2 p.m. each Friday following the Junior Ranger program. Saturday and Sunday visitor center open hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout the summer.
Volunteers operate the visitor center and assist with programs. Members of the community are encouraged to participate in park activities by becoming volunteers. Additional volunteers are needed.
