National Park Service: Junior Ranger Online - Missouri Virtual Ranger Online Activities

Junior Rangers are special people who are dedicated to our National Parks.

Their mission is to explore, learn, and protect, and to have fun while doing it!

While you can earn your Junior Ranger badge on your visit to the Missouri National Recreational River, we have also put together an opportunity for you to become an Missouri National Recreational River Virtual Junior Ranger.

Complete at least 6 of the 14 activities listed below to earn your Virtual Ranger badge! When you finish, download and print your badge to add to your collection!

If you are interested in receiving a hard-copy or electronic PDF version of our on-site Junior Ranger booklet, please email your request to Ranger Dugan Smith. For off-site visitors, please return or mail to Park Headquarters to receive a badge and become an official Missouri National Recreational River Junior Ranger.
