Be A Junior Ranger

Our Junior Ranger Program
Walnut Canyon National Monument is recruiting Junior Rangers. It is easy to earn your badge. It just takes a little time. Ask at the visitor center for a Junior Ranger booklet. Complete it, hand it in to a ranger to check it, and receive your badge! We are always happy to have new Junior Rangers join our staff!
