Pick up a Backyard Junior Ranger Kit, courtesy of the Mendocino Area Parks Association. In lieu of the traditional Junior Ranger program, MendoParks and California State Parks Mendocino Sector have created free kits to encourage nature-based learning for youth, especially for those without access to wifi or electronic devices.
The kits are available at the Ford House, MacKerricher, and Van Damme State Park Visitor Centers, between 11-4pm on Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays.
