Alaska Geographic is a longtime supporter of Junior Ranger programs. The Junior Ranger program is an activity-based educational program found at many Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Forest Service locations. Participants learn about public lands and the valuable cultural and natural resources they preserve and protect by completing Junior Ranger activities. After participants complete an activity, they are sworn in as a Junior Ranger!

Some agencies even award certificates, badges, and other prizes to participants. When mailing in your activity sheets and booklets, always make sure to include your mailing address. Although we try our best to keep the following information up to date, an address change may occur, please always double check the partners’ website to ensure proper mailing instructions.
