Be A Junior Ranger

Jr Ranger Activity books
Junior Paleontologist and Night Explorer Activity Books

The NPS Junior Ranger program is an activity based program conducted in almost all parks, including Scotts Bluff National Monument. Interested youth complete a series of activities during a park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger patch and Junior Ranger certificate. Junior Rangers are typically between the ages of 5 to 13, although people of all ages can participate.

In addition to the activity books for specific parks, there are other types of Junior Ranger programs. Junior Paleontologist takes kids into the world of fossils while the Jr. Ranger Night Explorer draws their eyes to the sky at night. More information about the National Park Service Junior Ranger programs can be found here.

If you are unable to visit Scotts Bluff National Monument, you can still learn about Scotts Bluff and the emigrant trails using our website. We have also put together an opportunity for you to become a Scotts Bluff National Monument Virtual Junior Ranger.
