If you cannot visit the Castillo de San Marcos, you can still experience our Nartional Parks by becoming an NPS Web Ranger!
As a National Park Service Web Ranger, you’ll learn what Park Rangers do to help protect our natural resources and our cultural heritage. You’ll also learn how Park Rangers observe and discover new things about our National Parks - things to share with visitors like you. You can help with caring for our parks, teaching others what you learn, and observing and exploring your environment.
There are a variety of games and activities to enjoy and learn from. After completing the web activities, you will receive an official Junior Ranger Certificate.
