For Kids

Anyone can be a Junior Ranger. Learning is the first step towards helping.

Print the Western Arctic National Parklands Junior Ranger book using both sides of the paper or reusing paper when possible. Complete as many activities as you can, and mail the book to the park. Not only will you be able to tell others what you learned about the parks in northwest Alaska, but you can also earn the Junior Ranger badge, saber toothed cat patch, and even a water bottle.

River drainages on the north side of the Kobuk River in Kobuk Valley National Park support a healthy chum salmon run. River drainages on the south side of the Kobuk are better suited for whitefish species such as sheefish that can weigh 60 pounds.
