Just have your parents stop-by the visitor center and ask if a pack is available to loan. A ranger will ask them to fill out the necessary form for borrowing the packs and be on your way to an adventure!

Each Junior Ranger Adventure Pack contains a backpack that has a pair of binoculars, animal tracks fold-out guide, compass, flashlight, adventure tool, Desert Survival Guide, New Mexico Birds fold-out guide, Desert Life book, Easy Field Guide –Birds, Easy Field Guide –Insects, Easy Field Guide –Mammals, and an Easy Field Guide –Snakes.
