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 Historical Park.

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, and the comfort station at the Boyhood Farm; ask a staff member for a booklet and a pencil.

Please feel free to download our Junior Ranger Book (accessible version).

For those unable to complete the book during their visit to the Jimmy Carter National Historical Park, the mailing address for the Jimmy Carter National Historical Park is 300 North Bond Street Plains, Georgia 31780.

Park staff are excited to learn that we have aspiring Jimmy Carter National Historical Park Junior Rangers! For those of you that have submitted (or plan to submit) your completed book to the park, please be patient in receiving your badge.
