In addition to the larger Junior Ranger Discovery Guide, Indiana Dunes has smaller Junior Ranger Activity booklets for families enjoying events just for the day. You can pick up one of these smaller booklets at the event or at the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center (DBMVC). These booklets include:

Beachcombers—for families just spending a day at the beach. Download this booklet by clicking on the above Beachcombers link. Bring this booklet to the DBMVC to receive your junior ranger badge.

Maple Sugar Time—for children learning about the maple sugaring process in March.
