Be A Junior Ranger
Junior Rangers are special people who are dedicated to their National Parks. Their mission is to explore, learn, and protect, and to have fun while doing it!
Any kid who visits has the chance to be a Junior Ranger. Here's what you do. Stop at the Visitor's Center to pick up a booklet filled with both creative and informative activities. As you explore the Monument, complete at least four pages. Show your work to a Ranger to earn an official Junior Ranger badge and signed certificate. Then, go out and teach others about what you learned during your visit.
The Junior Ranger corps is constantly growing. Will you be the next protector of your parks? Download a pdf file of the Junior Ranger Booklet and see how much you can do at home in preparation for your trip to Homestead National Monument of America.
