Are you in kindergarten through sixth grade? Would you like to have even more fun during your visit to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore?

In it you will find ideas for fun games and explorations in and around the national lakeshore. Complete the activities and earn your official Junior Ranger badge and certificate. Once you fill out the questions for your grade group, take the booklet back to the visitor center. If you have completed your portion, you'll earn a Junior Ranger Badge!

So c'mon ... join in the fun! Become a National Park Junior Ranger! We need your help taking care of our national treasures. You'll enjoy learning about and taking pride in America's National Parks.
