Junior Ranger Book
The Fort Matanzas Junior Ranger Program encourages children of all ages and their parents to explore both the history and nature of Fort Matanzas as a family and is a fun way for young visitors and their families to get the most out of their visit. As Junior Rangers, children will be a part of our team helping to protect our parks. Free books are available in the Visitor Center, or you can print out an activity book to bring with you by clicking HERE.
Then complete five or more of the activities in the booklet. Blue-starred activities are for children age 4-7; red-starred activities are for children age 8 and up. Completing these requirements will earn children a certificate of completion and an official Junior Ranger Badge from Fort Matanzas National Monument. Allow at least 1 1/2 hours to complete the Junior Ranger Program during your visit. If you finish at home, you can mail the booklet to the address on the back cover and we will return it along with the badge.
Virtual Junior Ranger
In addition to the activity booklet, we have an online opportunity for you to become a Fort Matanzas National Monument Virtual Ranger. Using the pages of our website, you can complete a quiz to earn your Virtual Ranger badge!
