Earn your badge in personThe Lewis and Clark Trail Junior Ranger program is available at more than 30 locations along the 4,900 mile Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. To earn a Junior Ranger badge, you'll work on an activity booklet. Activities will guide you to check out the place you're visiting and to find out why that place is important to the Lewis and Clark Expedition story. As you fill-in-the-blanks, you'll learn about Native lands. As you decode messages, you'll get to know expedition members’ diverse backgrounds and skills.
