Are You the Next Riverway Junior Ranger?
"Explore, Learn, and Protect!" The Junior Ranger motto is declared often at the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway to encourage youth to explore, learn, and protect their national park. To earn a badge and become a Riverway Junior Ranger, pick up a booklet at either of the two park visitor centers: Namekagon River and St. Croix River.
Not Available to Visit?
Start earning your badge virtually by downloading the Riverway Junior Ranger Booklet, completing the activities, and take part in two ranger-led video programs.
After completing the activities in the junior ranger booklet and watching two videos, you will have completed the requirements to become a St. Croix National Scenic Riverway Junior Ranger! Please mail your completed booklet to the St. Croix River Visitor Center and we will send you your badge and your completed booklet.
Participate in a Virtual Scavenger Hunt
Download the Scavenger Hunt pictured below, and draw, photograph and find as many of these nine items as you can. These can be found at the park, in your backyard, in books, on National Park websites (including this one!), or you can use photos you've already taken. Once completed post your images on your Facebook page and tag #ShareMyStCroix or #ShareMyNamekagon to share your results!
