Chami's Activity Book

Junior rangers of all ages can learn more about the Memorial from our mascot, Chami. Just ask for a free book, available in English and Spanish, at the visitor information desk in the Cultural Center. Junior rangers earn a badge by correctly completing the section of the booklet that matches their age group. Those who also complete the "Unity" section can earn a second patch as well. Feel free to complete all of the sections; Chami wants everyone to know as much as possible about his home! Junior Ranger books are only available in print and while visiting the park.

Historic Preservation Activity Book

Chamizal National Memorial was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 4, 1974. Taking care of places that are important to our country's history helps us remember the stories that tell who we are as a nation. President Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed the law that created Chamizal National Memorial, also signed the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966. To celebrate the law's 50th anniversary, learn about historic preservation and earn your NHPA50 junior ranger badge by completing the Historic Preservation Junior Ranger Activity Book. Pick one up at the Chamizal National Memorial Cultural Center or on the historic preservation website.
