Be A Junior Ranger
Become a Junior Ranger while exploring three of the South Florida's National Parks (Big Cypress National Preserve, Biscayne National Park, and Everglades National Park). Kids can pick up a free booklet at any park visitor center. You can also download your booklet by clicking on the links to the right in the language of your choice. Please remember that this is a large pdf file and make time some time to download.
Complete the required activities and return to the visitor center in person, or mail your booklet to the park of interest to earn an official Junior Ranger badge. Junior Rangers who complete the entire book can earn all three badges, plus a South Florida's National Parks patch!

Did You Know?
Feeding alligators creates nuisance alligators. Every year alligators that have been fed by visitors begin to lose their fear of humans. If these animals become aggresive they are killed to ensure visitor safety. To avoid this tragic end for these unique animals DO NOT FEED THEM.
