What is a Junior Ranger?

Junior Rangers are important people. They learn about nature and history, have fun exploring the parks, and tell their friends, families, and schoolmates about their adventures. Junior Rangers know that national parks are special places that need to be protected so they will be just as special in the future. Do you want to be a Junior Ranger?

How to become a Junior Ranger?

Kids of all ages can earn a Junior Ranger badge from Minidoka National Historic Site. You may earn a Junior Ranger badge by visiting Minidoka NHS and completing a set number of activities related to the site. After completing the Activity Booklet, you will get sworn in as a Junior Ranger and get awarded your very own Junior Ranger badge.

Where can you get a Junior Ranger Booklet?
The Junior Ranger Booklet is available at the visitor center. When you arrive in the park, stop by the visitor center to get your free booklet.
