Junior Ranger and Trading Cards

Cane River Creole National Historical Park is one of the many parks where children can earn their Junior Ranger badge and Civil War to Civil Rights trading cards.

To earn a Cane River Creole Junior Ranger badge, kids must complete the park's Junior Ranger Activity Book. Many important topics, including agriculture, architecture, and various regional cultures are introduced in the activity book. A free book can be picked up at the Oakland Plantation Store at the start of your visit. You may also contact the park and request a book be mailed to you. Younger Junior Rangers can check out our coloring pages. Complete the activities and send us your book. We will send it back with a Junior Ranger badge. Please note the new park mailing address: PO Box 925, Natchitoches, Louisiana 71458.

To earn Cane River Creole Civil War to Civil Rights trading cards, kids may complete the Junior Ranger Book, participate in a ranger-led tour or answer a question about their park visit.
