Junior Rangers explore the plants, animals, history and artifacts in the park. They learn the stories these things tell us about how they live in this ecosystem. Junior Rangers help protect the park by sharing their knowledge with others.

If you would like to become a Buffalo National River Junior Ranger during your visit to the park, request a booklet at one of the visitor contact stations or download it here by clicking on the logo at right.
