Learn how to become a Greenbelt Park Junior Ranger


Each National Park conducts its Junior ranger program in different ways due to staff and other factors.

Our goal here at Greenbelt Park is to provide a learning experience and promote appreciation and understanding of the environment. As a Junior Ranger you will learn to “preserve and protect our nation’s natural and cultural resources for the education and enjoyment of future generations”.

We are also expected to introduce a new Junior Ranger booklet in the Summer of 2015.

The new booklet was designed by the Student Conservation Association Junior Ranger Ambassador.

Kids click on link for Web Ranger- Explore and become a National Park Service Web Ranger! It was updated recently with new activities and ways to explore National Parks.

It's a blast!
