Be A Junior Ranger
Become a Junior Ranger! There are two ways to get a Junior Ranger handbook. When you come to the park, find a Boston National Historical Park Visitors Center. A park ranger, or volunteer, can give you a copy of the Junior Ranger Handbook. If you can't wait to get your hands on one, you can download a copy.
There are two Junior Ranger handbooks available. One is for the downtown portion of the Freedom Trail and the other is for the Charlestown portion. When you complete the activities in either handbook, a park ranger will present to you a Junior Ranger badge. If both handbooks are completed you can receive an additional badge designating you as a Master Junior Ranger.
Enjoy and we hope to see you at our park!
Did You Know?
Did you know that Old North Church's steeple has been replaced twice since the display of the signal lanterns on April 18, 1775? In neither case was the downfall caused by revolution, but by a mighty wind, a nameless storm of October, 1804, and Hurricane Carol, August, 1954.
