Discover the treasure of Jean Lafitte and become a National Park Service Junior Ranger!

ONLINE: Earn a Junior Ranger badge by completing one of the activities below. Once you've completed an activity, email the park to let us know which activity you did and what address you want your badge mailed to (it's the honor system; you don't need to email us a copy of the activity you did). Some of these activities were developed to do at park sites, so they may be tough to do wherever you are, but pick one and do your best!

IN PERSON: Earn a Junior Ranger badge at any of the park's six sites. Admission to all sites is free.

Explore the park through scavenger hunts, activities, puzzles, and more. Invent your own national park. Plot a course for Jean Lafitte. Depending on which park site you visit, you can play along with Cajun musicians, travel through history, hunt for spider webs, pack your gear for an 1815 battle, or learn about the foods that made Louisiana cooking famous.

Ask at the visitor center information desk for a Junior Ranger booklet and join the Jean Lafitte ranger team!
