Junior Ranger Program

Join Ranger Rufus on a Self-Guided, Family-Friendly Adventure!

Frisco Junior Rangers promise to help protect and preserve our natural resources. The Junior Ranger Handbook (PDF) will teach you all about recycling, litter, water and nature, all while you explore Frisco's beautiful natural areas with your friends and family. 

The Junior Ranger program is written for children 5-10 years old, but people of all ages are welcome to participate! Simply take this handbook with you on your next outdoor adventure in Frisco and complete the activities inside.
