Junior Ranger Program

Children from six to twelve can become a Junior Ranger at Washita Battlefield. Just pick up an activity booklet at the visitor center, and explore the park to find the answers to the book's activities.

Remember kids, ask your parents to help you fill out the booklet, and feel free to ask a park ranger any questions you might have.

Explore Washita Battlefield National Historic Site, complete the activities, and take the booklet to a park ranger for review. After the review, a Washita Battlefield Junior Ranger Badge will be awarded for a job well done.
