Free Park Ed-ventures This Summeresday, Jul 08, 2008
2:00 p.m.

 In addition to the wonderful activities listed in the Urban Park Rangers calendar, this summer the Rangers are offering more! Weekdays in the summer, bring the kids to parks around the city for our drop-in programs. Kids love earning their Nature Detective Badges as they explore the “wild”  side of parks with the Rangers. Scavenger hunts, micro-safaris, “tree-mendous” hikes, and other wildlife experiences await.
