What is a Junior Ranger?

"Explore, Learn, and Protect!" The Junior Ranger motto is recited by children around the country; each taking an oath of their own to protect parks, continue to learn about parks, and share their own ranger story with friends and family.

The NPS Junior Ranger program is an activity based program conducted at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.

Interested youth complete a series of activities during a park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger badge. Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 7 to 13, although people of all ages can take part.

Junior Ranger booklets are available at the front desk of Plains High School; ask a staff member for a booklet and a pencil.

Please feel free to download our Junior Ranger booklet.

For those unable to complete the book during their visit to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, the mailing address for the book is located in the back of the book.
