To preserve and promote the history of West Volusia County
WELCOME TO THE ECHO RANGERS Volusia County’s ECHO Ranger children's program educates youth, scout troops and their families about the many Ecological, Cultural, Heritage and Outdoors offerings in our area.
ECHO Rangers is also one of the programs sponsored by the West Volusia Historical Society to engage young people in activities that educate our future generations in the importance and relevance of history. The ECHO Ranger program is for children in grades 1 – 5 (as of Aug. 15, 2016). The cost is $20 per child. Entry fees to all sites for the ECHO Ranger candidate and one adult are included in the $20 fee. Contact the Conrad Center of the WVHS Complex at 386-740-6813 to register your child for one of these events.
Each activity lasts one to three hours, and reservations should be made at least one week in advance. The following ECHO Ranger programs are scheduled in 2017 through the WVHS and run from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm on the date of each event: May 20th, 2017 Did you know that Volusia County is the “Fern Capital of the World?” Yes, and we have nurseries growing all kinds of foliage! What is a fernery? What is “foliage?” Why are they so popular, and where do they go from here? Children will learn the answers to these questions and more as they get a glimpse of this natural Florida industry and create their own foliage arrangements using ferns.
