Be A Junior Ranger
What is the Junior Ranger Program?
Becoming a Junior Ranger is an adventure because the Mississippi River is such an exciting place to explore! There are many creatures living below the surface of the water, animals that leave signs on land but are rarely seen and twice a year there is an influx of migrating birds. The river also tells stories of the triumphs and tragedies of the people that came to this place hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years ago.
