Junior Ranger

A group of children stand below a sign that says Lake Roosevelt NRA Junior Ranger Park Protector Activities.

What is a Junior Ranger?

Junior Rangers help park rangers take care of National Parks. They learn about Lake Roosevelt, have fun, and help their friends and families understand how to help protect the parks as well.

Who can be a Junior Ranger?

Anyone! And you can learn about the park anywhere - at your campsite, on the road, or in your own living room. (please, not while driving, thank you) Spend an hour on the lake and enroll in fish school, paddle the watery trails of ancient explorers, find your way through the darkness using stars, and please don't touch the lava! You can write a play, create podcasts, draw a treasure map, or even take a hike!

To earn your badge, do one of the following:

  • Click here to download a copy of the book, do the activities, and either email us or mail it to the park to get your patch.
  • Complete any three of the activity pages below and show us. Email us once you have completed those activities or mail us copies of your work. We love to see the beautiful and creative ways that Junior Rangers use to learn about their parks and the world around them.
