When you visit the park, start out at the Junior Ranger Station and learn how you can help your National Parks.
If you are working from home, why not set up in your backyard and explore something new there?

National Park Service

As a Junior Ranger, you can help National Parks in many ways:

  • Learn the park stories.
  • Stay safe.
  • Keep the park free of litter.
  • Tell others about the things that you have learned.
  • Continue learning about other National Parks!

How can YOU become a Junior Ranger?
Fort Stanwix National Monument offers two Junior Ranger programs to choose from!

1 The first is our in park explorer option. Just come visit and ask a Ranger for a booklet!

If you want to be ready when you arrive you can
have your parents/guardians request a book be mailed to you before your visit.
That way you can begin your explorations early!
