Take a trip back in time and learn about the remarkable life of Maggie Lena Walker. Many National Parks offer visitors the opportunity to join the National Park Service Family as Junior Rangers. Interested students complete a series of activities during their park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger badge.

To become a Junior Ranger at Maggie L. Walker NHS, come to the visitor center, pick up a Junior Ranger activity booklet and start your quest to explore, learn and discover more about Maggie Walker. Once you have completed the booklet, return to the visitor center to receive your Junior Ranger Badge.
