What is a Junior Ranger?
Junior Rangers help to preserve National Parks; they learn about Dinosaur National Monument, have fun, and are our representatives to their friends, families, and schoolmates back home. Junior Rangers spread their new knowledge about Parks and continue to use good environmental practices.
