The Junior Ranger Club
With a family membership, children under 15 are automatically Junior Rangers and can participate in fun environmental and other activities in the parklands. All children at Junior Ranger events must be accompanied by an adult guardian who is a DPA member.
Junior Rangers are also eligible to enter the prize draw for participation in the a camp-out in the parklands. As of 2015 the draw will be done on clean-up Australia Day.
Typical Junior Ranger activities in the past have included:
* Picnic races (games day)
* Wildlife spotlighting walks with the park’s rangers
* Water quality activities including painting platypus stencils on street drains around the park and water monitoring with the creek’s Water Watch officer
* Building a bird nest box workshop.
* Fishing instruction with professionals.
However, new events are introduced each year, so look at our current schedule.
