The Junior Urban Forest Rangers (JUFR) program is more than just a fun day with LEAF for visiting day-campers. 2019 JUFR leader, Darya, explains how participating in this two-hour workshop helps children connect to the nature all around us.
Junior Urban Forest Rangers
Our Junior Urban Forest Rangers (JUFR) program is a special summer camp designated to give children the opportunity to appreciate and connect with the urban forest through fun and educational nature-themed activities. Today, we share our favourite activities to get kids moving and learning.
Every summer, LEAF hosts a one-of-a-kind urban forest experience for City of Toronto day campers. The campers, ages six through 12, join our staff at Riverdale Park East and partake in a series of fun and interactive activities with the aim of educating the kids on the value of the urban forest around us. This year, I was lucky enough to join the Junior Urban Forest Rangers (JUFR) for a day and see the action in person!
