Be a Junior Ranger at Pukaha these holidays

It's almost Easter school holidays so it's time to get your Junior 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 public holidays) 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 rain or shine! Come and help make a difference with us.

$25 per child per day (age 6 - 12 years old) includes a packed lunch from Wild Cafe (filled roll or hot soup,  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.

Spaces are limited and bookings are essential. Book now at or give us a call on 06 375 8004
