Calling fossil-lovers of all ages! If you love paleontology and the National Park Service units that preserve them, become a Junior Paleontologist! Complete an activity booklet, learning all about fossils and having some fun along the way, to earn your Junior Paleontologist badge.
Ask a ranger at any fossil park you’re visiting for your Junior Paleontologist booklet. If you’d like to get a head start before you arrive or you are completing your booklet at home, you can download and print a PDF of the booklet. Once your booklet is finished, check back in with a ranger at your park or mail your booklet back to the park to earn your Junior Paleontologist badge! Have fun out there!
