Be A Junior Ranger
Any child between the ages of 9 and 12 can become a Junior Ranger at Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site. When you arrive on site ask the first park ranger you see about becoming a Junior Ranger. You will be required to complete the activities in the "Official Activity Booklet" and agree to live by the Junior Ranger Promise and Dr. King's Six Principles of Nonviolence.
