Classic Junior Ranger Videos

WebRanger was an interactive digital learning tool for children developed in the 2000s. Utilizing the technology of the time, this was a wonderful new way to reach children across the globe. WebRanger was built using Adobe Flash and is no longer supported by most internet browsers. WebRanger activities and website functions no longer operated properly and the site was decommissioned at the end of 2019. These flash videos have been salvaged from Homestead's WebRanger activities for easy viewing!
