Junior Ranger Program from 2008.

Since 1997, over 400 area children have participated in the Walden Pond Junior Ranger program. The program introduces children to the outdoors, the ideas of Henry David Thoreau, creates friendships, and brings families together. Activities include hiking, natural history, wildlife and tree identification, ponding, journaling, and cultural history.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. The Junior Ranger program is a free program open to the public, sponsored by DCR and the Thoreau Society’s Friends of Walden Pond. The program is limited to 12 children per session; places are filled on a first come, first served basis.
