Hey Kids! Be a Junior Ranger!
Pick up a Junior Ranger book at any ranger program, the Mill, the Visitor Center in Van Buren or from your campground host. Then check out the fun activities, do what you can, and present your book to a ranger to get your handsome Junior Ranger badge!
It's free and it's fun!
If you can't come out to the park, or even if you can, you might want to check out the National Park Service's online Junior Ranger program for lots of fun activities. Click here!
Become a Junior Wildland Firefighter and meet "Scorchy Squirrel". For your free Junior Wildland Firefighter booklet click here. Once completed stop by an Ozark National Scenic Riverways Visitor Center at Van Buren, Alley Spring or Round Spring for your official swearing in ceremony and badge.
You and your family are always welcome to join us on a hike or for a slide show. Click here to learn about Ranger Programs.
