Junior Naturalist Program May 10, 2019 October 14, 2019 Permit Office or any park program

Hey Kids! Would you like to become a Junior Naturalist? Do you love nature and want to learn more about the environment? You can! Just pick up a Junior Naturalist Passport from any of the Discovery Educational Programs or from the Permit Office to get started. Then you’re ready to start earning stamps on your passport - for each park program you participate in you will receive one stamp, also for each activity sheet you fill out you will earn one stamp. Speak to a Park Naturalist or the Permit Office staff to get your passport stamped, to find out about upcoming park programs or to pick up more activity sheets to work on. Once you have 3 stamps on your passport you will become a Junior Naturalist Level 1! For each Level completed you will receive a certificate, a small reward, and a ballot for our end-of-summer prize pack contest. We now have 8 levels of Junior Naturalist at Balsam Lake Provincial Park, see if you can earn them all!
