Learn what it takes to become a Junior Ranger! On Saturday, April 23, Lake Mead National Recreation Area will host its Junior Ranger Day for the public to learn about how they can help preserve cultural and environmental treasures found within national parks. Recreators of all ages are invited to visit the Alan Bible Visitor Center grounds from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm to learn about why public lands deserve to be protected and celebrated for future generations. 

All ages and abilities are welcome to learn about the wild and wonderful world within the park. Activities will highlight what it takes to be a park ranger, the diverse plant and wildlife our field researchers monitor, the B.A.R.K Ranger Program, park volunteer opportunities, water and fire safety awareness trainings, and more.  

After participants visit the different activity tables, they will take the pledge to become official Junior Rangers and be presented with a Lake Mead Junior Ranger badge.   

All current fourth grade and home-school equivalent students who attend the event are encouraged to bring a paper copy of their Every Kid Outdoors pass that will grant them and three guests free admission to more than 2,000 federal public lands, including more than 400 national park units between September 1, 2022 – August 31, 2023.
