Be A Junior Ranger
Mesa Verde National Park has a new Junior Ranger Booklet! Follow two new friends, one from the present and one from the past, as they help you explore the park and guide you through the activities. Feel free to download and print a copy of the Junior Ranger booklet prior to your visit, or pick one up when you arrive in the park. After completing the booklet, bring it to any park information center to receive your Mesa Verde Junior Ranger badge. Enjoy!
