Be A Junior Ranger

South Florida Junior Ranger patch
Diego, Peter and Aleesha are South Florida's junior ranger mascots.
Join Diego the dolphin, Peter the panther and Aleesha the alligator in exploring three South Florida parks (Big Cypress National Preserve, and Biscayne and Everglades National Park). Pick up a booklet at any park visitor center and complete the required activities to earn a badge. Complete the entire book and earn three badges plus an exclusive South Florida junior ranger patch! Books are available in English, Spanish and Creole. To request a digital copy of the Junior Ranger book for you to print at home, please send us an e-mail or phone the park visitor center, 305-230-1144.

Along with earning a junior ranger badge, there are lots of other great activities for kids in parks. Camping, fishing, boating and special family-friendly events are just a few of the things offered at Biscayne.
