Hi! My name is Kathy and this is my friend Gentle Rain. She and her family used to live in a Mesa Verde cliff dwelling 750 years ago. She helped me become a junior ranger, and now both of us want to help you.
Becoming an online Junior Ranger is fun! As you explore the park online and complete activities in this booklet, you will learn about Gentle Rain’s culture, look for items her family and friends might have used, and visit their homes.
Just follow our directions in the booklet and you’ll become a Mesa Verde Junior Ranger and earn a virtual badge in no time! (The link to the virtual badge is provided in the booklet.)
