Activities for Kids

Junior Ranger Challenge

Calling all kids, ages 7-12! We invite you and your family to explore San Mateo County’s wealth of natural, cultural, and recreational resources. Instead of in-person Junior Ranger programs, this year we're doing a Junior Ranger Challenge so you can become a Junior Ranger safely with your COVID pod. The challenge runs from April 1–September 30. Get started!
