The Junior Ranger programmes in the national parks, biosphere reserves and nature parks are aimed at children aged 7-12(14). About 40 youngsters in this age group regularly attend the junior ranger meetings at Emsland Moormuseum.
We organize many participatory activities relating to the animals and plants of the peatland and help to take care of the regional peatlands through work assignments. Junior rangers regularly go on camping trips, day trips or excursions to the local nature park as well as other protected areas. Together, we learn how to interact with nature outdoors. You will find more information about junior rangers at junior-ranger.de
The junior rangers form a fixed group. If you are interested, please call us or email us about available places. (There is already a waiting list.)
