JUNIOR RANGER PROGRAM
Our young visitors can become an official Junior Ranger at Canyon de Chelly National Monument! We invite you and your family to visit Canyon de Chelly and other neighboring parks around the Navajo Nation to learn more about the cultural and natural resources and the importance of preserving them.
Even if you are unable to visit the park in person, the Junior Ranger Worksheet is available online. Complete the activities and mail the worksheet to the park to earn a badge, postcard, and booklet. You can even complete the worksheet electronically and email them to the Park Ranger. Thank you for participating in this program just for kids!
Services available virtually:
YOUTH IN THE PARKSTwo great ways to learn more about the National Parks is to become a Volunteer or join a Conservation Crew! Both options give youth an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the park. Volunteers can help visitors at the Visitor Center, provide talks for visitors or help lead a hike. Conservation Crews hire youth to help preserve and protect the parks. Ask us about becoming a volunteer or check with your local Chapter House, Office of Dine' Youth or Navajo Nation Workforce Development. Information is also available with these organizations - Ancestral Lands Program, Canyon Country Youth Corps, and Student Conservation Association.
