Historic Preservation Junior Ranger Program

Preserve History as a Junior Ranger!

2016 marked the 50
th Anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on October 15, 1966. This historic legislation is arguably the most powerful historic preservation law in the United States. Without the NHPA the landscape of our country would have suffered irreparable loss of historic resources. To help celebrate and honor the passage of the NHPA and educate the next generation of historic preservation stewards a National Historic Preservation Junior Ranger Booklet was created. The Junior Ranger Activity Book is available for download:

The Historic Preservation Junior Ranger Book was conceptualized, designed, and developed by six graduates of the 2015 Generating Organizational Advancement and Leadership Academy (GOAL) and funded by the Office of the Associate Director for Cultural Resources, Partnerships, and Science.
