How does it work?

While visiting Big Bend National Park, pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Booklet at any park visitor center. Complete the appropriate activities for your age group (listed inside) and return the booklet to any visitor center. A park ranger will review your book with you.

Want to get started right away? You can also download a PDF of the Big Bend Junior Ranger book (23.4 MB).

When your booklet is completed you will receive your badge and join the proud ranks of Big Bend Junior Rangers.
