How to Pack Like a Ranger

For those who love to hike, learning to stay safe is a must. The Prepare Like a Ranger: Introduction to Wilderness Safety class aims to help youth do just that. A part of Sonoma County Regional Parks’ Junior Rangers program, the two-hour class will teach kids ages 7–13 how to prepare for day trips and overnight outings. Topics will include basic first aid, planning, preparation, and gear. The class will be held on March 20 at 2:30 p.m. at Ragle Ranch Regional Park in Sebastopol. The cost is $10 for Sonoma County residents and $12 for out-of-county attendees. Learn more and register at
