Children with Junior Ranger books.
Children can complete Junior Ranger books and earn a badge!

Want to have fun while exploring Death Valley? You can become a JUNIOR RANGER!

Here are the things you will need to do:

1) Pick up a free activity booklet at Furnace Creek Visitor Center, or print one off here:

Mid-April to Mid-October: Summer Booklet (663 KB PDF)
Mid-October to Mid-April: Winter Booklet (999 KB PDF)

2) Complete the right number of activities for your age.

Once you finish your booklet, bring it to Furnace Creek Visitor Center. A park ranger will check your booklet and you will receive your official badge. Once you're done, you can also buy a patch at the visitor center bookstore.

Join a park ranger for a guided hike or ranger talk during the fall, winter or spring seasons. Stop by the visitor center in Furnace Creek to check on times and locations.
