Be a Junior Ranger
Just like park rangers, junior rangers are important people who help preserve and protect Lassen Volcanic National park and all its features for present and future generations. To become a Junior Ranger you can pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Booklet at the Loomis Museum or Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center. You may also download the Junior Ranger Activities Booklet (pdf, 1.6 MB); print on legal-size paper. Once you have completed the booklet, turn it in to a ranger at a park visitor center or mail it Kohm-Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, Lassen Volcanic National Park, P.O. Box 100, Mineral, CA 96063. You will receive a Junior Ranger certificate and patch for your hard work and dedication to the park!
