Colorado National Monument's Junior Ranger booklet

Anyone can become a Junior Ranger! Ask a ranger for a booklet at the visitor center or entrance station. Complete the activities in the booklet, and return to the visitor center. A ranger or volunteer will help answer any questions about what you saw while exploring. Then, you'll say the Junior Ranger pledge to receive your official Junior Ranger badge! We're happy to work with your needs to earn a badge.

There is no age limit on who can become a Junior Ranger. Most National Park sites offer Junior Ranger programs. You can explore and learn about the parks, all while earning your badges.

For Junior Rangers who can't come to the monument, we have a .pdf version of the booklet that we can email to you. Due to shipping costs we are unable to mail physical badges, and will provide official Junior Ranger stickers by mail instead.

That's the Jr. Ranger Motto. Follow the steps below to earn your badge. The activity guide is designed for ages 5 and up, and there is no age limit.
