Box Moor Rangers
Box Moor Rangers is the junior group of the Box Moor Trust, and is for children between the ages of 4 and 16 who are interested in nature and wildlife – from badgers to bumble bees, from flowers to flycatchers!
The group meets on the third Saturday of every month with the aim of motivating and educating young people to enjoy wildlife and the countryside so that they understand the importance of preserving the natural environment for future generations.
Within the group we have three age groups:
- Mini Rangers, for 3-7 year olds, meet at the Box Moor Trust Old Barn from 1.30-2.30pm and attend with their parents
- Junior Rangers, for 8-11 year olds, meet at the Box Moor Trust Old Barn from 10am-12.30pm
- Youth Conservation Rangers for ages 11 and over, meet at the Box Moor Trust Centre from 10am-12.30pm
There is a charge of £1 per child and membership is essential as there is a limited number of spaces available.
Box Moor Rangers takes place at the Old Barn; for a map please click here.
