The Junior Snow Ranger program is designed for children in the 4th and 5th grade.  Outdoor and indoor activities are included in a colorful publication that highlights themes such as safety, wildlife, winter ecology, recreation, and the joy of winter fun.  The program mission is to inspire youth to embrace a life-long relationship with the winter environment, and to become stewards of the land.   

 The activity book highlights the role of a real snow ranger, the use of rescue dogs, and the continued importance of wildfire prevention during the winter.  In addition, it teaches kids how to make their own snowshoes, similar to those that were once used in some Native American cultures.
