The National Park Service (NPS) offers young nature lovers a special opportunity just for them called the Junior Ranger Program.

This activity-based program, available at almost all NPS destinations, offers youth visitors the chance to earn special badges by completing a series of activities during a park visit and sharing their answers with a park ranger.
