Join in on a Junior Ranger Explorer Activity at Goose Island State Park!  Junior Ranger Explorer Activities focus on discovering the outdoors and nature.  Prior to the hike we will go over the contents of a Junior Ranger Explorer Pack and how they can be used on our 50 species Hike! 

This activity is for individuals of all ages.  A 50 Species Hike is a way for children or adults to learn to identify new things, or learn more about the things they are already familiar with. 

We may not get a total of 50 species on the Hike, but there are Junior Ranger Explorer Backpacks available at the Park Headquarters for continuing the challenge on your own.

When:  8:30 a.m. 

Where:  We will meet at the Bird Sanctuary on Warbler Way at 8:30 a.m.  The Bird Sanctuary is in the woods camping area of the park, and is next to the restrooms on Warbler Way. 

Helpful things to bring:  A journal to record the names of your species, a camera if you want pictures, water, bug spray, and sturdy shoes; a Junior Ranger Explorer Pack is optional.  

Park Location:  So where is Goose Island State Park?  We are located north of Rockport Fulton across the Copano Causeway on 202 S. Palmetto, Rockport, Tx. 

Goose Island State Park has a day use fee of $5 per person 13 years of age and older, children 12 and under are free.
