Sign the kids up for Gulf State Park's 2018 Junior Ranger Program and let them learn about camping, fishing, bugs, insects and animals. What a fantastic way to teach kids more about the uniqueness of the Gulf Coast environment!

Kids Love The Gulf State Park Junior Ranger Program

Bring the kids over to Gulf State Park during the summer of 2018 for the Gulf State Park Junior Ranger Program.

Held at 9 a.m., Fridays, from June 8-July 27 (excluding July 6), the Gulf State Park program is open to kids aged 11 to 14 accompanied by a parent.

Depending on the class attended, junior rangers will learn the ins and outs of camping; search for a mock turtle nest on the beach and monitor it to protect hatchlings; learn about birds of prey, learn about the basics of fishing, including rigging a fishing rod and baiting a hook; learn about bugs and insects that live in Gulf State Park; learn about the animals and plants that live in the area; learn the difference between frogs and toads; and more.

To make reservations for a session, call the Nature Center at (251) 948-7275, ext. 2114.

Once class is finished for the day, be sure to explore Gulf State Park’s nature trails, nature center, and fishing and education pier, among other facilities.

A Gulf Shores four-bedroom condo is a perfect spot to accommodate more than one family, including the little ones.
