Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Badges and the Memorial House Museum

Junior Rangers care about our national parks. Their mission is to explore, learn, and protect our nation's parks for future generations, and have fun while doing it!

Junior Ranger activity booklets are free and available upon request at the park visitor center. After completing the booklet, Junior Rangers receive a special badge to mark their accomplishment. Can't make it to George Washington Birthplace National Monument? Not a problem. Contact us to request a digital copy for you to print at home.
