WebRanger programs let you become a Junior Ranger from home, school or anywhere. Complete an activity book to receive an official Junior Ranger badge you earn at home! Many national parks offer young visitors the opportunity to join the National Park Service "family" as Junior Rangers. Interested youth complete a series of activities during a park visit, share their answers with a park ranger, and receive an official Junior Ranger patch and Junior Ranger certificate.

"Explore, Learn, and Protect!"

The Junior Ranger motto is recited by children around the country; each taking an oath of their own to protect parks, continue to learn about parks, and share their own ranger story with friends and family.

Kids you can be a Junior WEB RANGER even if you are not able to visit a National Park. You will become a member of a growing group of 'KIDS' and young people who are interested in the world around them and involved with their nation's heritage. Visit the Official Website to start your journey. Set up your Ranger Station and you're ready to explore your National Parks.
