Jerry's Rangers might evoke nostalgia for some parents who fondly remember participating in this multi-step program years ago, and now, our Ambassadors are proudly bringing back the magic for a new generation to enjoy. Jerry's Rangers graduates receive a pair of the famous Jerry the Moose Antlers!



We just got back from a week in Rathtrevor in Parksville. The absolute highlight of our trip was the Jerry’s Rangers program. My kids absolutely fell in love and it quickly became the focus of our trip. We couldn’t miss a session. It was simply outstanding.” - Jerry’s Rangers Participant Parent


Our Ambassadors play a crucial role in contributing to community science efforts, recording biodiversity observations on iNaturalist. They also extend their reach by providing programs to community groups, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to access and enjoy parks, regardless of resources or background.



A parent came up to me and was asking me questions about being an Ambassador, the programs we run, and the Foundation in general. She was really excited that her kids were getting to participate because she loved Jerry's Rangers when she was little. We continued to talk about how it was really exciting that I get to be a part of the Discover Parks Ambassador program while it is new and growing and that we were both really excited to see how it will grow in in the future. She said she thinks it’s going to grow to be huge because what we are doing is important and we are making a really positive impact.” - Carolyn, Chilliwack 2023 Ambassador










The Discover Parks Ambassador program is run in partnership with BC Parks and funded in part through the BC Parks license plate program.
