Get out side and explore with a ranger or your family. See nature at work in your national parks.

Anyone can become a Junior Ranger while exploring three of the South Florida's National Parks (Big Cypress National Preserve, Biscayne National Park, and Everglades National Park). For ages from 1 to 100, pick up a free booklet at any park visitor center.

Complete the activities and return to the visitor center in person, or mail your booklet to the park of interest to earn an official Junior Ranger badge. Junior Rangers who complete the entire book can earn all three badges, plus a South Florida's National Parks patch!
