Socal Explorer Campaign

With nine partners and 19 parks, the SoCal Explorer Campaign aims to get kids excited about exploring the outdoors. Kids can earn digital and embroidered badges by completing Missions!

  • Park-specific Badge: Complete one Mission
  • Explorer Badge & Fun Prizes*: Complete three Missions
  • Super Explorer Badge & Fun Prizes*: Complete an additional Mission outside of Los Angeles
  • SoCal Explorer Badge & Amazing Prizes*: Complete all 19 Missions

*Enter your name in a draw to win prizes!

Since most parks do not have WiFi, make sure the “Discovery Agents” app and the park’s Mission are downloaded from Google Play or the App Store (it’s free) before you get to your destination. Agents of Discovery does not require data or WiFi to play once downloaded.
