Junior Ranger Programs:.
Hi Kids!
As a Junior Ranger you can help
National Parks in many ways:

  • Learn the park stories.
  • Stay safe.
  • Keep the park free of litter.
  • Tell others about the things that you have learned.
  • Continue learning about other National Parks!
How can YOU become a Junior Ranger?.
Fort Stanwix National Monument offers two
Junior Ranger programs to choose from!

The first is our in park explorer option.
Just come visit and ask a Ranger for a booklet!

If you want to be ready when you arrive you can
have your parents/guardians request a book be mailed to you before your visit.
That way you can begin your explorations early!
