We love wandering around outside checking out the local critters so we were excited to hear about the great Junior Rangers Program run through Sam Merrifield Library in Moonee Ponds! Just grab your library card (or sign up in five minutes, you don't have to live in the council area) and check out one of the junior ranger packs.
Inside your pack is a magnifying glass, a pair of binoculars, a clipboard and pencil, a map of Queens Park and a checklist of birds, bugs and plants to find.
Queens Park is only a minute's walk from the library so you will be adventuring in no time!
The park has sealed paths the whole way around so you can tackle this adventure on wheels too. There are also two great playgrounds and a cafe in the park so plenty to keep you amused.
You have the pack for 24hours before you need to return it, lots of time to complete your checklist.
Sam Merrifield Library is located at
762 Mt Alexander Road
Moonee Ponds VIC 3039
and their opening hours can be found on their website.
