Be A Junior Ranger


Become a Carlsbad Caverns National Park Junior Ranger! Learn about the natural wonders of the park and how you can help preserve them for the future. To become a Junior Ranger, request a free Junior Ranger Activity Book at the visitor center. While the program is available for download below, only children visiting the park can complete the requirements necessary to earn the patch or badge.

After completing the age appropriate requirements, and reviewing their work with a ranger, participants will be awarded an official Junior Ranger patch or badge.

To download the Junior Ranger Program:

0 - 6 years

7 - 12 years
