Junior Ranger Pledge

Before you say the Junior Ranger pledge, make sure that you have an adult check your book. Once you are ready, raise your right hand and repeat the pledge below:

As a Junior Ranger, I promise to:

  • Protect and preserve both natural and cultural resources for my generation and generations to come.
  • Do my best to keep our environment free from litter and trash.
  • Explore my National Parks and teach others what I have learned.
