Thanks to your support for this campaign, our Junior Ranger program has been going strong and children who started the protect during the pandemic were finally able to complete the curriculum and celebrate.
Here are a few updates since we last wrote:
At last! IWe were able to graduate a group of 107 children from our Junior Ranger program in celebrations held in five communities. These resilient kids had started their Junior Ranger learning journey in 2020. During the first year of the pandemic, the children showed their patience as they participated in remote lessons. Then, in 2021, we were able to resume in-person lessons and the children showed their enthusiasm for engaging with their natural world. Thanks to the Kathryn B. McQuade Foundation for their support, which augmented yours in advancing this program throughout the pandemic.
Thanks to you, the Junior Ranger program continued in 2022, and included new ocean curriculum with the help of the Benedict Family Foundation. Early next year we will hold a graduation celebration for the 2022 cohort, thanks to your support and that of the Woolley Family Foundation. We are proud of the Junior Rangers for sticking with the program and are oh-so-grateful to you for helping the children succeed. Thank you!
We hope that you have a wonderful New Year! We look forward to celebrating more about the accomplishments of the Junior Rangers with you. Thank you again.
