That’s right, move over kids, it’s the adult’s time to junior ranger this thing.
Most people don’t realize it, but anyone of any age can complete a junior ranger handbook and earn their Junior Ranger badge at the national park they visit. This provides everyone with a great opportunity to learn and appreciate the park they are camping in. So, grab you crayons, grab your camel bag, and go earn your badge!
While I am working in Big Bend National Park for 6 months I will surely take some time on my off days to earn my first junior ranger badge. First of 400+ I hope!
