In The Parks!

When you earn your Junior Ranger badge or certificate, you'll learn what park rangers do to help protect plants, animals, birds, and land, in addition to how we work with different communities and cultures to understand and remember our history. As a Junior Ranger, you'll care for our national parks, teach others what you learn, and discover new ways to experience your environment.
