You have completed all the tasks needed to become the newest Junior Ranger of Theodore
Roosevelt National Park.

Now to say the pledge; stand up straight and tall, raise your right hand, and repeat after me...

“I am a Junior Ranger.
I’ll protect this park from danger.
I will not pick the plants.
I won’t step on the ants.
No animals will get my food
And I won’t litter ‘cause it’s rude
My job is never done.
This ranger life is fun!”
