Earn a junior ranger badge or patch by obtaining our Junior Ranger Activity Book from the visitor center. Complete the activities in the book and then check in with a ranger at the desk. The average time for kids to complete the junior ranger book is 2 hours.

After completion, present your Junior Ranger Badge for a 10% discount on any one book sold by the Rocky Mountain Nature Association's bookstore in the Visitor Center.

Over 300 National Park units offer Junior Ranger programs, so get out there and start collecting them all!
