Become a Junior Ranger at the Deep Forest and Eagle Habitat Interpretive Walks - Rockport State Park: Free (Discover Pass required for parking)

Saturday 12 January 2019, 11:00am - 04:00pm
Hits : 11033

The Deep Forest Experience programs take place between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in January and February and leave from the Discovery Center at Rockport State Park, 51905 State Route 20, Rockport.

Rockport State Park staff and volunteers will lead half-mile, 45-minute walks under a dense canopy of old growth fir, cedar, hemlock and maple trees. Many of the Rockport trees are 400 years old and older and top out at 250 feet. They include the 500-year old “Grandmother Cedar.”

Guided Deep Forest hikes depart at 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.

During the walks, interpretive staff and guest speakers will discuss the unseen ecosystems that keep forests healthy, including salmon-bearing streams, animal scat and mycorrhizal fungi.

Participants should dress for cold, wet, winter weather, including suitable footwear.

Visitors can also duck into the family-friendly Discovery Center, enjoy free refreshments and hot cocoa by the woodstove, explore interactive displays, watch nature videos, read books and make crafts.

Rockport will once again offer Junior Ranger programs for children age five and older to learn, play and protect natural spaces. A new addition in 2019: Rockport State Park will offer custom-made Junior Ranger badges to children who complete the Junior Ranger activity book. Junior Rangers also are encouraged to attend a guided hike.


A $10 day-use pass or $30 annual Discover Pass is required for parking at Rockport State Park; passes can be purchased at the office or Discovery Center.
