What is the Junior Ranger Program?
The Junior Ranger Program at the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area connects people to the river through a variety of activities. The program is generally geared for ages 8-12, but anyone who wants to explore, learn about, and protect the river is welcome! Each National Park Service site has their own, unique Junior Ranger badge. Whether we're your first Junior Ranger badge or your 100th, we hope you'll enjoy becoming an official Junior Ranger at our Park!
