Jr Ranger Badge

1) Becoming a Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers NM Junior Ranger

To earn your park junior ranger badge you need to take the park WebQuest quiz about Charles Young and the Buffalo Soldiers. No worries, the quiz isn't anything you need to study for all night long, just review the information on Charles Young and the men of the Buffalo Soldiers and then take the multiple choice quiz. Get your parents to help out, make it a family event. We're sure that everyone in the house can benefit from taking this informative and fun quiz.

Here's how to get started:

  1. Read up about Charles Young and the men of the Buffalo Soldiers.
  2. Download the WebQuest quiz.
  3. Open up the PDF file and take the quiz on your computer. Read through each question and choose the best answer. Feel free to go back to the Charles Young and the Buffalo Soldiers web pages if you need assistance in completing your work (it's an open-book quiz, rather an open-webpage quiz).
  4. When you complete your quiz, simply save your quiz on your computer and then email it to us (chyo_socialmedia@nps.gov) as an attachment. You can also print your completed quiz out and send it to us the old fashioned way through the U.S. mail. Be sure to write down your full name in the body of your message so we can fill out your certificate. Also, be sure to write your return address down too.
  5. Once we receive your quiz, we'll go over your work and then we'll send you your Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers Junior Ranger badge and certificate of accomplishment!
  6. After you complete your quiz, head over to the Park Fun page to find out what other activities are available from our website.

2) Become a NPS Centennial Junior Ranger!

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service, we launched a new junior ranger program for all to learn about the importance of one of the country's most recognized public agencies. You can download the new Centennial Junior Ranger Activity Book and then print it out to complete. Fill out as much of the booklet as you can and then bring it to any National Park Service visitor center for a ranger to review. Once we look it over, you'll receive your limited edition Junior Ranger Centennial Badge and the ranger will sign your certificate. If you can't make it to a visitor center, you can also mail your completed booklet to us (mailing address can be found on page 3 of the booklet). Be sure to include your return address so we can send you your badge.

Enjoy this activity by yourself, with friends or with your family! Be sure to visit one of the nation's 400+ National Park Service sites this year and help us celebrate 100 years of service!
