Greetings Junior Rangers,
Welcome to the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site!
You’re about to embark on a very important mission: to become a Junior Ranger! Junior Rangers are very important to our National Parks. As a Junior Ranger you can help park rangers with their jobs. Park rangers at Saugus Iron Works are responsible for the entire park. They’re responsible for natural resources like the trees, the river, wildlife, fish and wetlands; and they’re responsible for cultural resources like the artifacts, the reconstructed industrial site, and the Iron Works House. Park Rangers are also responsible for the people who visit the park – like you and your family.
A Junior Ranger has to learn about Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, share this knowledge with other people, and teach others how and why we should care for our special historic places. As a Junior Ranger who cares about the Iron Works one of your most important jobs is to help preserve it for the future. Have fun!
