Become a Junior Ranger
You don't have to visit the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center to be a Junior Ranger. Anyone can become a Kobuk Valley National Park Junior Ranger by printing a copy of the Western Arctic National Parklands Junior Ranger book, completing the activities and mailing the book back to the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center. Remember to print on both sides of the page or reuse old paper whenever possible.
The fun games and activities in the Junior Ranger book will help kids (and adults) learn about the natural wonders and culture of Northwest Alaska, and you can earn a Junior Ranger badge and a saber toothed tiger Junior Ranger patch.
During the summer, the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center offers a variety of kids program for local children and young visitors alike. Call the front desk or stop by the Visitor Center to see what is happening while you visit! You can take a sneak peek at some of our Junior Ranger programs in these videos highlighting some of our favorite activities.
