National Junior Ranger Day

Happy National Park Week!  National Park Week is celebrated every April for a week.  National Park Week is a time to explore about these amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, volunteer, and find your park!

Each day this week has a theme and today is National Junior Ranger Day!  The junior ranger program allows people of all ages to โ€œexplore, learn, and protectโ€ your national parks by doing some activities to earn their badge. Each park offers different activities or programs.

(And yes, they really mean all ages as I did the program at a national park as an adult and even before having kids as I thought it was so cool!)

I highly recommend checking this program out the next time you visit a cool place within our national park system!

Since you canโ€™t make to a national park right now, you can become a webranger online! Click here for the web site!

In addition, you can become a junior ranger by learning about the importance of sounds outside. Click here for the packet. Once you complete it, you can get a digital high five. See the last page for the direction.

Cheers to the start of National Park Week!
