To participate in this on-site program, the prospective Junior Ranger picks up a workbook at the Visitor Center and fills in the questions while visiting the park. Upon returning to the Visitor Center, a ranger will go over the work with the candidate. Successful candidates receive a Bandelier Junior Ranger wooden badge and our hearty congratulations. No charge; year-round; on-site only.
The Junior Ranger program also includes an opportunity for Deputy Rangers - adults! (that is, anyone above 7th grade -c'mon Mom and Dad, don't be shy!) It also consists of a workbook, rewarded by a wooden badge (and congratulations!)
AND - the National Park Service has instituted a web-based program called Webrangers. Find out more about this program at www.nps.gov/webrangers.
