Be A Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Logo

Kids ages 6 and up can become a Junior Ranger at the Natchez Trace Parkway by completing the activities in the Junior Ranger Activity book. By completing activities like word searches, walking on a section of the Old Trace, or asking a park ranger about their job, kids will learn more about the Natchez Trace Parkway and move closer to earning their Junior Ranger badges.

You can be an Online Junior Ranger if you cannot travel to the Natchez Trace Parkway.
