Anza-Borrego is one of many California State Parks that offer Junior Ranger programs for children 7-12 years old. Geology, ecology, history, plant life and wildlife are some of the educational topics explored. While discovering this desert environment, Junior Ranger participants have an opportunity to learn and play with other children whose families are visiting the Park.

Junior Ranger programs are held at the Visitor Center just about every Saturday morning from November through April, from 10–11 a.m., and are free of charge. Attendance is limited. You can sign up at the Visitor Center:
