Kids can get a Junior Ranger booklet at the Visitor Center Information Desk, attend ranger-led activities, choose activities in the booklet to earn "bat points," and receive their Junior Ranger badge and certificate at the Information Desk. But don't think it's going to be easy... You've got to use your eyes and ears to gather all the information you need to know.
