Rangers know that fast moving storms can hit at any time in Colorado. Being caught in lightning, rain, snow or wind is a dangerous situation for a ranger out on patrol. Building an emergency shelter is a survival skill that all rangers must know how to do.
Your challenge is to learn how to build an emergency shelter so that you can stay dry, warm and safe if you get caught in a storm. Meet the rangers at Heil Valley Ranch on July 28 from 10 a.m. - noon. You'll be in survivalist mode so wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty.
This event is part of the Junior Ranger Adventures Summer Challenge, a program for kids and adults to earn points and badges by completing challenges. It is meant to get you outdoors while using technology to track your progress. Earn enough points and you’ll be invited to a special celebration ceremony where you’ll have lunch with the rangers and a change to win awesome prizes.
