Be A Junior Ranger

Buffalo River Junior Ranger Booklet
Buffalo National River Junior Ranger Handbook


Buffalo National River Junior Rangers explore the park and investigate the resources that make it special: the plants, the animals, the natural and cultural landscapes, the history, and the connections among all of these things. Junior Rangers strive to help protect the park, and they share their knowledge with others. Today's Junior Rangers are tomorrow's public land stewards.
