Stuck at home on a rainy day? You can still be a part of the National Park Junior Ranger Program through WebRangers --- the online interactive Junior Ranger Program. Now you can explore, learn, and protect special places from your computer. WebRangers can post stories or photos, scan National Park web-cams, answer the "Question of the Week" and complete activities to earn rewards. When you complete all the activities, you will earn the WebRangers patch. If you wish to become a Junior Ranger from home, you can reach the National Park WebRanger pages by visiting: www.nps.gov/webrangers
