Be A Junior Ranger

The Junior Ranger program is a great way to discover more about Colorado National Monument! To get started, pick up a booklet from the visitor center or an entrance station, complete the activities, and then return to the visitor center. A ranger or volunteer will swear you in, answer any questions you have about what you saw while you were exploring, and award your official Junior Ranger badge.

Did you know that there's no age limit? Everyone is invited to become a Junior Ranger and earn your badge. Pick up your booklet at the visitor center or either entrance station, and begin your journey!
