National Park Week in April always kicks off with National Junior Ranger Day. Kids (and adults) of all ages are invited to become a Junior Ranger during the national day and any day of the year!
The Junior Ranger Program is a great way to explore national parks. You can learn about nature sounds, night skies, or even the Transcontinental Railroad! You'll also learn why national parks matter and how you can be a part of the team that helps keep parks healthy.
We don't care what age you are—just "explore, learn, and protect" your national parks online and become an official Junior Ranger! Look for the virtual badges you can print out and post on your refrigerator.
The NPS Kids Portal is where to start your virtual national park experience and participate in fun activities and special online programs for the whole family. Check out online and printable activities along with virtual tours, videos, and webcams from national parks all across the country.
