Be a Junior Ranger In Person

If you plan to visit the park in person, stop by the Denali Visitor Center or Murie Science and Learning Center for a free Junior Ranger Activity Book. Show your book to a park ranger after completing the activities inside. The park ranger will review and sign your book, lead you in the Denali Junior Ranger Pledge, and present you with an official badge.

Be sure to bring your book back home and share your Denali experience with family and friends. Download our Denali for Families travel guide for more ideas of family-friendly fun.
