Be A Junior Ranger

A wall filled with Junior Ranger badges and patches.
There are numerous badges and patches you can earn at various sites!
Almost every site has access to a Junior Ranger program, including Knife River Indian Villages. We have one specific to the park for 6 and under, one for 7 and over, and a separate Junior Ranger Archeology and National Historic Preservation Act Junior Ranger booklet.

An Online Junior Ranger program with a digital badge is available for anyone looking for online activities to complete at home. This program is different than the Junior Ranger booklets.

Junior Ranger badges are awarded to participants that complete the Junior Ranger booklet.

The Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site Junior Ranger program provides participants with exploration into the cultural and historic aspects of the Mandan and Hidatsa people during their 500 years of occupation at the confluence of the Knife and Missouri rivers sites.

Please request a Junior Ranger Book to be mailed to you by email or by calling 701-745-3300.
