Tule Springs Fossil Beds Junior Ranger Program

Explore, Learn, Protect!

Junior Rangers help to preserve and protect national parks. They learn about nature and history, have fun exploring the parks, and tell their friends, families, and schoolmates about their adventures. Junior Rangers continue to protect the environment at home and at school.
