The Junior Ranger program helps kids get involved and learn more about Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. Anyone can become a Junior Ranger by completing activities during a visit to the park.

Get a free Junior Ranger Activity Book (PDF file) from the Visitor Center. Follow the activity instructions in the activity book. When the activity book is complete return to the Visitor Center to receive your official Junior Ranger badge for Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.

You can be a Junior Ranger on the Web even if you can't visit a national park. Be a WebRanger »
