Junior Ranger Program

What is a Junior Ranger?

Junior Rangers help to preserve National Parks; they learn about Lake Roosevelt, have fun, and are our representatives to their friends, families, and schoolmates back home. Junior Rangers spread their new knowledge about Parks and continue to use good environmental practices.

How can you become a Junior Ranger?

At Lake Roosevelt, there are multiple ways for you to complete the Junior Ranger requirements and be sworn in as a Lake Roosevelt National Park Junior Ranger. All of our Junior Ranger programs are free of charge. Visit any Lake Roosevelt Ranger Station or District Office to learn more.



 

Did You Know?

These folks thought their campsite was far enough away from the water, but woke to find toys and coolers floating away.

Lake Roosevelt is the primary flood control reservoir on the Columbia River. The lake level can rise up to 4 feet per day in spring and drop 1 foot per day in summer. When shoreline camping, find out what the lake level is and don't put a tent close to the water unless you want a chilly surprise.
