Be A Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Program: Children visiting the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site can become a Junior Ranger by picking up a Junior Ranger Activity Book with activities for children ages five and up from or downloading it from this site.

Participants who attend at least one ranger program and complete five activities will earn a Junior Ranger badge. Activities are related to locations throughout the park and include word scrambles, dot-to-dot, bingo, matching and more... as well as activities to do at home.

It takes a lot to preserve and protect America's natural and historic treasures. We need your help to keep our parks safe and beautiful. Become a National Park Service WebRanger and see just how much fun learning can be!
