Junior rangers learn about nature and history, have fun exploring the parks, and share what they learn with friends and family. Junior rangers know that national parks are special places that need to be protected so they will be just as special in the future.
Become a Junior Ranger During Your Visit
Earn your badge or patch by completing activities in a Junior Ranger booklet. Free booklets for Minidoka National Historic Site and Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial are available in person at the Minidoka Visitor Center during regular operating hours. Complete activities in the book, then show your booklet to a ranger. The ranger will sign your certificate, give you a badge or patch, and swear you in as an official junior ranger!
