It’s the perfect option for the upcoming school holidays.
My kids were stoked to be dropped off at Pukaha Mount Bruce during the July school holidays to become Junior Rangers.
The kids also got to watch the eel feeding which is popular with both the Junior Rangers and other visitors.
Lunch was included in the day (always a highlight for my kids) and they got to play some awesome inside games based around conservation learning.
Pukaha Mount Bruce is a unique and special place where you can learn all about the native species that call Aotearoa home.
Managed in partnership by the Pukaha Mount Bruce Board and the Department of Conservation, activities on the reserve are not just about advocacy. There’s an ongoing restoration project as well as captive breeding projects for several endangered species.
If you think being a Junior Ranger might be something your kids are interested in you can find more information on the Pukaha Mount Bruce website.
Find a range of other conservation activities to try these school holidays on the DOC website.
