Junior Ranger Program
In acknowledgement of National Trails Day, Shoreline at Mountain View has launched an exciting new Junior Ranger Program . The Junior Ranger program is a guidebook of fun and educational activities for children age 6-12.  By completing the guidebook, youth will build pride in their achievements and build depth of knowledge regarding land use, debris management, recycling, renewable energy, historic preservation, park safety, outdoor preparedness, bird conservation, as well as rare and endangered species.  Now that the kickoff event is complete, participation may occur on an ongoing basis.  Click here download the booklet, follow the instructions, and let us know when you are ready to receive your Junior Ranger badge!

Stay tuned for additional events to be added Summer 2014!
