Pick a Park
Send your Flat Ranger to any of the parks listed on the following document. Not all parks are currently participating in the program and it might take a while for your Flat Ranger to continue their journey if you choose a park not on the list. But don't let that discourage you from trying.
Mail Your Flat Ranger
You can send your Flat Ranger to one park at a time or you can send him/her on a longer trip.
If you want to send your Flat Ranger on a long trip, be sure to put that in your letter. You can include a list of parks you want your Flat Ranger to visit or you can ask the Ranger to pick a park for you.
(If your Flat Ranger needs to be home by a certain date, put that in your letter, too.)
