Shenandoah's award-winning Junior Ranger Explorer Notebook provides children age 7 and older with the opportunity to have fun learning about the park as they work toward becoming Junior Rangers. The 15 activities in the book guide children as they explore forest trails, streams, plants, and animals. Children draw, record observations, and answer questions. After completing a certain number of activities, and attending two ranger programs, children earn a sticker, badge, or patch. Families may rent Junior Ranger backpacks (Junior Ranger Explorer Notebook is free with backpack rental) containing field guides, binoculars, and other supplies. Junior Ranger Explorer Notebook can be purchased at visitor center bookstores for a small fee. Click the link below to visit the Shenandoah National Park Association's website for more information.
