Become a Big Bend Junior Ranger during a Visit to the Park

Big Bend National Park invites young visitors to become official Junior Rangers. You can earn a Junior Ranger badge by learning about the park's natural and cultural history.

Pick up a free Junior Ranger Activity Book at any park visitor center. The book is full of fun activities about the park's history, wildlife, plants, and geology. After you complete your activities, review them with a ranger. The ranger will sign your certificate and present you with an official Junior Ranger badge!
