Dinosaur National Monument has Junior Ranger and Junior Paleontology programs available for children at no cost. Children are given a booklet with age-appropriate activities and complete a number of the activities based on their age. They are given a Junior Ranger or Junior Paleontologist badge upon completion.
Junior Rangers and Junior Paleontologists pledge to take care of Dinosaur National Monument and be respectful of the environment.
