National Parks are special places set aside by the American people to conserve the scenery, and preserve natural, cultural and historic resources to provide for their enjoyment in a way that leaves them unimpaired for future generations.
National Park Junior Ranger Programs connect young people to their national parks through many hands-on, guided, and self-guided activities, and cultivate future generations of park stewards and explorers.
