Our Junior Ranger Program
Imagine the earth shaking beneath your feet while volcanic ash and hot cinders fall from the sky. What was that like for the Indigenous people who lived here when Sunset Crater Volcano erupted? What are scientists doing today to study volcanoes and earthquakes? What animals and plants are able to survive in this volcanic landscape?

Learn more becoming a Jr. Ranger at Sunset Crater Volcano.
