Become a Junior Ranger

Follow these steps to become a Junior Ranger: 

  1. Watch nature programs with your family.  Answer the questions in the Junior Ranger Activity Book.  Programs should be documentaries or provide good information about something you're interested in learning more about.
  2. Complete the rest of the activities in the activity book.  Do as much as you can as best as you can.  
  3. Get a Junior Ranger badge!  You can mail your packet to one of the three visitor centers. Include your contact information, mailing address, and age of the Junior Ranger. We will mail you a badge or contact you to get more information. You can also bring the Junior Ranger to a visitor center once we've reopened. If you have questions, give us a call!
