Attention Teachers:
Completing the Junior Ranger questions as a class is encouraged. We will honor your entire class with a Junior Ranger Class Stewardship certificate and patch.

Please ensure each student has met the minimum eligibility requirements for the program, then mail all programs together as a class. Your class certificate and patch will be sent back to you as soon as the booklets are reviewed by a ranger at the trail office.

Good luck and have fun! Thank you for learning about the Lewis and Clark story.

The Corps of Discovery didn’t discover anything. Everything the Corps reported on- plants, animals, landforms - had been known to and used by American Indian tribes for generations. The Corps were, however, the first to record these items for science.
