What is a Junior Ranger?
A Junior Ranger is an important person who helps park rangers take care of our national parks. Do you like exploring the park, riding the trolley, taking boat trips, or walking along the canals? Would you like to have fun and help us take care of the park?

If the answer is yes, then you might be just the kid we're looking for to become our newest Junior Ranger!
