A Christmas message from Junior Rangers

Holiday Program Update

Hello junior rangers – we’ve made it to the holidays and we are so excited! Have you been online to book your activities yet?  Spaces are filling up fast so make sure you go to https://juniorrangers.com.au/whats-on/ to secure your place.

Can’t make it to an activity this time?  No problem! Our Park Rangers plan to bring the parks to your living room with our live events.  It’s a great chance to ask them lots of questions about our wonderful wildlife and have them answer live on air! Our Junior Rangers also have you covered as we share more ideas to get you outside exploring and having fun outdoors.

Junior Ranger Activity Challenges

A little while ago we celebrated the winners of our spring school holidays Macpac competition, Kaia and Sana, and shared some of their wonderful photos with you all.  Lots of you emailed in to tell us what you had been up to and we loved receiving all your photos too.  Junior Ranger Kaia has sent us something since we spoke to her, which was inspired by all the ranger videos that we posted as part of our ‘30 things in spring challenges’.  Check out our winner’s blog and Kaia’s video about one of her favourite parks and some of the wonderful plants and animals that live there.

Summer Challenge # 2 Can you make a two minute Junior Ranger video talking about your favourite park?  Send it in juniorrangers.com.au and we might feature it in our next newsletter.

If you’re a little shy in front of the camera why not take up Summer Challenge # 3 sent in by Junior Ranger Zachary.

Find some thin and bendy branches, stems or grasses that you’re allowed to use at home.

Christmas star tree decoration

  1. Make a bend about halfway up
  2. Fold 3 more times making sure they are the same length each time.
  3. Weave the folds to create a star.
  4. Wrap the rest of the twig around to unbent half and secure it
  5. You can knot it or use string or rubber bands to hold it firm.


Our live webinars are back!

We know how much you loved our live events with our Park Rangers so we have more planned for the holidays.  Join Ness and Ebonee as they explore some of the treasures from Serendip Sanctuary.
