Become a Junior Ranger

The park will mail you Junior Ranger Badges and Patches until the novel coronavirus concerns have passed. Please do not mail your booklets into the park; instead, email the Pecos Visitor Information email with your mailing address and how many badges and patches you need for your Junior Rangers!

You don't have to visit Pecos National Historical Park to be a Junior Ranger. Anyone can become a Junior Ranger by printing a copy of the Junior Ranger Booklet, completing the activities and mailing the book to the park. Remember to print on both sides of the page or reuse old paper whenever possible.

The fun activities in the Junior Ranger book will help kids (and adults) learn about what makes Pecos National Historical Park so special. If you do enough activities, you will be able to earn a junior ranger badge and maybe even a patch.

**Printing tip: For activity 6, the Trade Fair, the maze spans two pages. To complete the maze, we recommend you tape the page together to help keep everything aligned.
