Explore, learn, protect.
Do you care about exploring, learning about, and protecting Gila Cliff Dwellings? If yes, become a Junior Ranger by completing the Junior Ranger book.
Become a Junior Ranger
Visitors of any age can pick up a Junior Ranger book at the Gila Visitor Center or Trailhead. To become a Junior Ranger, you must complete at least five specific activities in the book. Return your completed book to a ranger at the visitor center or trailhead, take the Junior Ranger pledge, and earn your badge!
Become a Senior Ranger
This program is for those visitors of any age who are looking for a challenge or who have already completed the Junior Ranger program. To become a Senior Ranger, you must complete at least ten activities in the book. Instead of a badge, Senior Rangers earn a special patch.
Don't have enough time to finish the book while you are in the park? No problem! Send your book back to the park when you complete it. A ranger will check your work and mail the book back to you with a badge and signed certificate.
