How to Become a Trail Junior Ranger

Trail of Tears National Historic Trail has it's own Junior Ranger Program!

1. Download the Junior Ranger Program, print the program front to back, and fold it in half.

2. Complete the program by using the official map and guide.

3. Once you are done, email us (at ntir_Junior_Ranger@nps.gov) a photo of your completed worksheet. Include your full name and address in the email, as well as the worksheet. We'll check your answers and send you an exclusive Junior Ranger badge!

 

Note: the "contact us" email, and the email listed above are the same.

Due to the current Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and changes in office hours, please expect a slight delay in receiving your Junior Ranger badge. Thank you for your understanding.

Or you can mail your worksheet to:

(expect a few weeks for response time)
