Be A Junior Ranger
Anyone can become a Junior Ranger if they are ready to learn about Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and have fun! As a Junior Ranger, your responsibility is to enjoy and protect all the national park sites you visit.
The booklet has activities for ages 6 to 12, but younger children can complete it with help, and older kids and adults are welcome to participate as well.
If you are printing the booklet at home, it works best on 8 1/2'' x 14'' size paper. Hard copies are available at the Contact Station located at the Reconstructed Fort site, the Visitor Center, and at Pearson Air Museum. The program is free.
