There are 3 things Junior Rangers always remember to do:
1. Know before you go
Junior Rangers are always prepared for their next park adventure.
- Find out about the park you are going to visit and what you can do there.
- Check the weather before you go and make sure you have the right equipment, clothes and footwear with you.
- Take plenty of food, water to drink, and sun protection.
2. Keep our parks wild
Junior Rangers know that a park is a special home for native animals and plants.
- Respect animals’ homes by leaving plants, shells, logs and even rocks where you find them.
- Animals are healthiest eating their natural foods, so only share your food with other people.
- Never walk up to wildlife because it might become frightened and try to protect itself.
- Use all your senses to connect with the natural environment.
3. Leave no trace
When Junior Rangers visit a park you would never know they had been there!
- Leave everything as you find it. The best souvenirs of your adventure are your memories. Take photos, drawings or write about your experiences in your nature diary.
- Respect any evidence of the past that you might find. Parks protect our history.
- Keep yourself safe and protect the park by staying on walking tracks and not damaging vegetation.
- Take all food scraps and rubbish home to put in the bin or recycle.
- Only camp where it is permitted and keep your campsite small and tidy.
- Only light fires in the fireplaces provided and always put the fire out completely.
