Junior Park Ranger Badge

Be a Junior Ranger!
Become a Black Canyon of the Gunnison Junior Ranger during your next visit and learn how to protect the park.

What is a Junior Ranger?
Junior Rangers help to preserve and protect national parks. They learn about nature and history, have fun exploring the parks, and tell their friends, families, and schoolmates about their adventures. Junior Rangers continue to protect the environment at home and at school.

How can you become a Junior Ranger?
Pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Booklet at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison South Rim Visitor Center, or download a copy from our Brochures page. Complete the requirements listed in the booklet for your age group. Requirements include writing your observations, drawing pictures, completing field activities, and attending a ranger-led program.
