Rushton Junior Naturalist Celebration
All Nature Keepers are invited to this special celebration. Those who have attended two events within each of the four themes as designated by the icons on the schedule (for a total of 8) will be awarded the Rushton Junior Naturalist certificate. Following a final challenge activity, there will be a fun awards ceremony with prizes and pizza!
Rushton Nature Keepers (RNK) is a membership only program for children ages 7-11. You can only register for individual RNK events if you have paid the membership fee.
