Junior Ranger Programs

All the National Parks, National Monuments and National Historic sites have Junior Ranger programs that our family has enjoyed completing. Earning a Junior Ranger badge requires learning more about the location and taking a pledge to preserve that park / historic site/ monument.

 Clicking on the name of the park / monument will take you to the National Park Service Web site for that park / monument.
