The new Larimer County Natural Resources Junior Ranger Guide, which aims to connect children ages 7-12 to the amazing parks and open spaces in Larimer County, is now available. Ranger guide activities include visiting local parks and open spaces, attending guided hikes and programs and interviewing a ranger.

Pick up a copy of the guide at the Larimer County Admin Offices, 1800 S. County Rd. 31 in Loveland, or download a copy at

If children complete five or more activities by the end of the summer, they will be entered into a drawing to win a kid’s backpack donated by REI Fort Collins. All children will receive a Larimer County Junior Ranger badge upon completing 5 activities.
