Junior Ranger Program
Bighorn Canyon's Junior Ranger Program is a great way for children, as well as their parents, to experience the park. By completing several different activities, the whole family will learn about:
- the Yellowtail Dam
- the history of the Bighorn Canyon area
- a wide variety of wildlife
The Junior Ranger program booklets can be picked up at the Bighorn Canyon Visitor Center in Lovell, Wyoming, Crooked Creek Contact Station, Afterbay Contact Station or Yellowtail Dam Visitor Center in Fort Smith, Montana.
When the booklets are filled out, the children can return them to any of the above sites to receive their Junior Ranger badge (pictured to the right) and become an official Bighorn Canyon Junior Ranger.
