Your kids can become Point Defiance Park's first Junior Rangers! This new program is tons of fun and teaches respect for nature and the park.

Complete the handbook at any pace, then when ready, Junior Ranger hopefuls can present the book to the Visitors Center ambassadors and recite the pledge to receive an official Junior Ranger badge.

Handbooks are free and are available at the Visitors Center, open every weekend until Labor Day.
