Complete and return the booklet to park staff. We will be thrilled to award you a Junior Ranger Badge and certificate for your hard work!

If you can't visit the GWMP in person, don't worry - you can earn a Junior Ranger badge by downloading and completing the following Junior Ranger Booklets.

You can also mail your completed book with your return address to:
