Be A Junior Ranger
There is always something for both kids and adults to do together, while visiting Virgin Islands National Park. To help protect the natural and cultural resources of St. John, you are welcome to join the Junior Ranger program on St. John. Come along and join the fun!
During your sightseeing, stop by the Visitor Center and pick up a Junior Ranger workbook. Workbook exercises include “interviews” with trees, word searches, games and a natural hike. At the end, return to the Visitor Center, show your workbook to a Ranger, who will award you with a Junior Ranger program certificate and badge; congratulations!
