The Easter school holidays means it's time to get your little Rangers signed up for Ranger duty! Pukaha can help keep the kids busy with our hands on, interactive school holiday programme.

Junior Rangers can report for duty these school holidays, every Monday- Friday (except ANZAC Day) from 11-3. Get in behind the scenes with our Rangers and learn about caring for our birds and our forest. We will look at our insects, plants and eco-systems. On your first Junior Ranger duty you will collect your Junior Ranger conservation action booklet. Completed conservation actions can earn rewards. You might even become a Pukaha Conservation leader.

Our ranger guides are great at coming up with fun activities to suit the conditions but a Junior Rangers motto is "Be prepared" as we go snow, rain or shine! Come and help make a difference with us.

$30 per child per day (age 5 - 9 years old) includes a packed lunch from Wild Cafe (filled roll or sausage in a bun,fruit, homemade biscuit) plus water. We prefer the Junior Rangers join our programme without their adult however when you bring your Junior Rangers to Pukaha you can enjoy a free coffee in our Wild Café and go and enjoy a walk around the park for half-price while waiting for the Junior Rangers to come off duty.

Pukaha is now offering a separate programme for 10-14 year olds- Te kakanau-the seed, will be offered on Wednesday 11-3pm of the first week and Tuesday 11-3pm of the second week. This programme takes it up a notch for your older, keen kid conservationist and starts to explore tracking, trapping and restoration at a more advanced level.

All the usual behind the scenes ranger fun will still be part of this awesome day. $20 per day. They are required to bring their own lunch and the right outdoor gear as this programme runs rain or shine.
