What is a Junior Ranger?
Junior Rangers help to preserve National Parks; they learn about their Nationat Parks, have fun, and are our representatives to their friends, families, and schoolmates back home. Junior Rangers spread their new knowledge about Parks and continue to use good environmental practices.
The park's free Junior Ranger activity booklet is available at both the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center and at the Washington's Headquarters Museum.
