A programme designed to inspire and support families exploring their local river.
Visiting a river can be a great way of connecting with nature, learning about wildlife and just enjoying the outdoors.
The Junior River Rangers Scheme provides fun activities for you to complete as a family while exploring and learning about your river.
Participants receive a certificate and Kingfisher pin badge from us as recognition.
Once you have completed the requirements below, fill in the form below to receive your badge and certificate.
A Junior River Ranger is someone who recognises that rivers are important for people and wildlife and respects the natural environment through positive action.
None of our activities require that you get in the river and it is our recommendation that you enjoy the river from the river’s edge.
Please read our river safety guidelines, to keep you and your family safe.
There are plenty of activities to choose from. Remember, you need to pick at least 1 Blue and 2 Green activities to get your badge.

The water we use is taken from the river or from sources that feed rivers. This means the more water we use, the less there is available for wildlife.
We can help protect the river for people and wildlife by changing our behaviours, saving water and encouraging others to do the same.
Use our scoresheet to keep a record of Happy Water Droplets collected if completing more than one activity.
