Hey Kids! You can become a Junior Ranger online!
Here's what you've got to do.

  1. Complete 5 Junior Ranger activities (there's plenty to choose from - you can pick the ones you like).
  2. Mail your activities to a Park Ranger. We'll send your activities back and give you a special Junior Ranger sticker and an official certificate! (Wade will explain more later.)

The Timucuan Preserve has lots of history and plenty of nature to see and enjoy. There are activities to choose from on each of the webpages below. We even help you find the answers for each activity!

Choose a link to get started. Remember - you only need to do 5 activities, but each page gives you three options to choose from. If you're having fun, do them all!
