Park Rangers will be at Hidden Valley on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m starting Jan. 21 through early April. They will have Junior Ranger books, badges, and much more to help with your adventures.

RMNP says Junior Rangers of all ages can learn about winter ecology, animal track identification, and winter mountain safety. Families can borrow Winter Explorer Bags and participate in several interactive winter-time investigations.

Each bag will include a hand magnifying glass, a pair of binoculars and a thermometer for checking snow, air and soil temperatures.
