Kids eXtreme Programs
Wyoming State Parks, Historic Site & Trails is committed to connecting nature and children. It is our goal to help families and children learn about and enjoy the outdoors.

- Junior Rangers and Junior Historian Programs
- Our Junior Ranger and Junior Historian programs are designed to encourage children to actively learn and explore at the park, historic site, or museum they are visiting.
Activity booklets are created to stimulate the imagination while allowing participants the flexibility to complete the programs at their own pace.
Kids – share your answers with site staff and receive a prize! Happy learning!

- Trees for Wyoming
- The Tress For Wyoming program was developed to empower youth and give them a way to respond to the beetle devastation happening in Wyoming and throughout the West. The pilot program in Cheyenne brought together the Laramie County Conservation District, WY State Parks, Historic Sites & Trails and students from Cheyenne Central High School. 33 students and their administrators planted 510 saplings, supplied by the Conservation District, at Curt Gowdy State Park.

- Youth Ambassador Program
- The Youth Ambassador program is a national youth-led movement that was developed by America’s State Parks. The impetus of this program is that Youth Ambassadors will promote the outdoors to other young adults, specifically to those who have not developed a deep connection with outdoor recreation. Reporting on their adventures through social media, Youth Ambassadors share their own passions for the outdoors in hopes of inspiring others to get outside and experience what the state parks have to offer.
