Be A Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Badge
Junior Ranger Badge

Become an expert on Martin Van Buren and Lindenwald through the Junior Ranger Program. Make sure to stop by the Visitors Center once you arrive to pick up the booklet. During your visit complete the booklet by watching the short 10 minute film in the Visitors Center, walking the Wayside Loop Trail, or taking a tour of Lindenwald. Once you have finished your booklet stop back in the Visitors Center so a park ranger can review your finished booklet with you. If your booklet is finished you will receive your badge and certificate making you a Junior Ranger of Martin Van Buren National Historic Site.

If you would like to work on the booklet before you arrive you can print out copies in advance. There are two Junior Ranger books; one for kindergarten- 2nd grade levels and another for 3rd grade and up.
