What is a Junior Ranger?
Would you like to learn more about Leave No Trace or Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct? What about the bald eagle soaring overhead or the fish swimming in the river? Try your hand at writing a story like western author Zane Grey did near the banks of the river. The Upper Delaware Junior Ranger Activity booklet will allow you to explore the natural and cultural world in and around the Upper Delaware River. The booklet is recommended for ages 5-12 but is fun for all ages.
The National Park Service (NPS), Union Pacific Railroad, and the National Park Foundation (NPF) have released the brand new Junior Ranger Railroad Explorer activity booklet. You can either download the book or you can email us to send you a copy. This book will teach you about the transcontinental railroad, which helped link the United States from coast to coast. It also brings the rich history of railroads to life in a fun and engaging way.
With this book in your hands, you are ready to become a Railroad Explorer! The Junior Ranger Railroad Explorer booklet can be completed before visiting the park or the finished booklet can also be mailed to the park and a badge will be sent to you.

Water is everywhere around us and plays a very important role in our daily lives. Bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, and oceans are found throughout national parks. The National Park Service manages its water resources to protect the environment and promote recreation. To learn more about these water resources, that not only provide homes for many organisms but also play a role in the water cycle, why not become a Junior Ranger Underwater Explorer. If you would like a copy of the Junior Ranger Underwater Explorer send us an email so you can begin to dive into the underwater world. When you have finished the activity guide bring it to the park or mail it to:
