Be A Junior Ranger

Gulf Islands Junior Ranger Badge
Children who complete one of the Junior Ranger programs earn an official Junior Ranger badge.

Children ages 6-11, can complete one of the many Junior Ranger programs to earn their Gulf Islands National Seashore Junior Ranger badge!

To meet the Junior Ranger requirements, children need to complete one of the Junior Ranger handbooks available at park visitor centers and contact stations.

Handbooks can be checked and junior ranger badges awarded at the Fort Pickens Discovery Center, Fort Barrancas Visitor Center, and Davis Bayou Visitor Center.

Visitors can also download and print an electronic version of the junior ranger booklet via the NPS Gallery site. Junior Ranger passport stamps are also offered in select locations, which can be viewed at our Passport Stamps page.

Each handbook and age group has different requirements. The program provides a great opportunity for children to learn about the natural wonders and historic stories and places of the national seashore. Plus it's fun, rewarding, and free!
