Junior Ranger Program
Children can become Junior Rangers and earn an Aztec Ruins Junior Ranger badge by exploring the archeological site and answering questions in our Junior Ranger activity booklet, provided at the Visitor Center. Along the way they learn about the history and preservation of this place while making connections to the ancestral Pueblo world.
Did You Know?
Despite being surrounded by a modern community, Aztec Ruins offers habitat for a number of species. The high desert, riparian, and historical orchard environments serve as home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. Large mammals commonly seen are mule deer; less common visitors have been cougars and black bears.
