Junior Ranger Programs engage elementary age children ages 6-12 in meaningful learning by participating in park educational programs, completing an activity booklet, and learning about stewardship of natural resources. Children can earn a badge by completing the activity booklet for a park. They complete the booklet for multiple parks and collect additional badges. They have the option of joining a free Department of Parks and Recreation newsletter for Junior Rangers.
After a successful pilot program with five parks the program is now available for all North Carolina's State Parks. For more information and to download the activity booklet go to State Wide Booklet
SORRY, adults are not eligible to earn this badges - KIDS ONLY! So be a Parent, Big Brother, Big Sister, Uncle, Aunt, or invite a friends family to a park and help them learn about the world they live in.
