Junior Rangers

Kids of all ages, including kids at heart, can earn their badge and become a Junior Ranger!

Junior Rangers learn about the National Park Service to help to preserve and protect our important resources and places. They also share their knowledge with others to help keep these special places around for future generations.To be a Junior Ranger is a special honor and privilege.

You can earn a Junior Ranger badge by completing a number of junior ranger booklet activities related to the site. After completing the Activity Booklet, you will receive a certificate, get sworn in as a Junior Ranger, and get to wear a badge just like official Park Rangers wear.

Are you ready to become a Junior Ranger and help the National Park Service preserve and protect parks in the New York City-New Jersey metro area?
