There are TWO ways to become a Junior Ranger. You can visit the park and earn the badge in person. Please visit any of the park visitor centers and pick up a free booklet!
You can also complete the online version of our Junior Ranger booklet, which is designed to be completed using our website. Just click on the workbook below and print out the pages. Complete the activities, answer the questions, and mail it to us. A Park Ranger will review your answers - if you complete all the requirements, we'll send you a badge and certificate! All of the information you need to complete the booklet is located somewhere in the park's web site.
The Junior Ranger program at Wrangell-St. Elias is geared towards children, but ALL ages may participate! Have fun!
