California State Parks Junior Ranger Badge


Ranger-Guided Program (available June - August)
From games and crafts to hikes and watching wildlife, explore some of the best places in California and make new friends along the way. To get started, children ages 7 to 12 should check our calendar or visit any information center for the time and place of the next Junior Ranger activity (typically about 1 hour long). Get an official state park badge after completing your first activity. There's even more prizes to be won, but you don't have to earn them here. You can continue at over 70 other state parks around California!

Here at Redwood National and State Parks, we're proud of our Junior Rangers. They're true partners in helping preserve these special places for future generations. Thank you!
