The Junior Ranger program has been in use throughout the National Park System for more than two decades. Most of the 419 National Park Service units across America offer the program, and Russell Cave National Monument is one of them. Each park has its own Junior Ranger program, with a variety of activities in each.
Russell Cave's Junior Ranger Book is available by download or by picking up a copy at the Visitor Center. This book is designed in a way so you can choose various activities to complete based on participant ages.
Additionally, Russell Cave has a Junior Archeologist Book available by download.
Once complete, we ask that you either return the books to a ranger at the visitor center, scan the books and email them to one of our rangers, or mail them to the visitor center located at 3729 County Road 98, Bridgeport, AL, 35740. After completion, a Junior Ranger badge will be awarded to each new Junior Ranger.
