Junior Rangers across the state have the opportunity to learn about the nature and history of Georgia. However, each park hold a singular flare based on the area’s ecosystem and history. Mistletoe State Park, located in Appling , Georgia, focuses their program on survival training. Program participants learn how to pack a survival kit, start a fire without matches, make a solar oven, tie knots and build a shelter. It’s terrific fun for kids and incredible skills that can be used throughout life. It’s also a fabulous opportunity to also make some new friends!
Plants and animals life cycles is a popular program among schools for field trips. Hands on opportunities to learn about the natural world make lasting impressions that energize and inspire students. All of these experiences in educational programming provide opportunities for volunteers to help make a strong difference in the lives of hundreds of kids while utilizing their skills to teach others.
