Welcome to the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park! We know that's a mouthful, so we just call it the C&O Canal for short.
We are glad you want to become a Junior Ranger. Rangers want to protect plants, wildlife, and historic features so those who come after us can also enjoy them.
Junior Rangers are special people because they have decided to take an active role in the National Park Service Mission, "to preserve and protect our natural, cultural and recreational resources for this and future generations."
Junior Ranger Activity Books are available in any of our visitor centers. Can't stop by? Request a C&O Canal Junior Ranger Activity Book be sent to you by emailing our education department or calling 301-714-2213.
