Be A Junior Ranger
An NPS Photo
To complete the Junior Ranger booklet, you just need to finish the number of activities required for your age group in the booklet. While you are doing the booklet, you can also visit the different areas of the park - the Visitor Center/Museum, the Tailor Shop, the Early Home, the Homestead, and the Cemetery. When you are done, bring your booklet back to the Visitor Center so the attendant on duty can check your booklet and award you a Junior Ranger badge!
You can also become a web ranger, and visit the National Parks online. Visit www.nps.gov/webrangers.

The United States purchased Alaska from Russia for $7,200,000.00 during Andrew Johnson's administration. Secretary of State William Seward was instrumental in the purchase. People who thought the investment a bad idea called the purchase "Seward's Folly" and "Johnson's Polar Bear Garden."
