WHEN? Friday · July 13 (today's first post)

WHERE? Devils Tower Visitor Center

One of Wendell's favorite National Park Service duties is certifying younger visitors who pass the rigid requirements of the Devils Tower Junior Ranger program. Once the appropriate paperwork has been completed and approved, a certificate is awarded to the new Junior Ranger:National Park Service logo

Students across the nation follow the Junior Ranger program to learn more about United States National Parks and Historic Sites. New York middle schooler Sam Maslow and his brother have accumulated hundreds of Junior Ranger patches, badges and pins. Junior Ranger Sarah Watts from North Carolina, who has also earned an impressive number of certificates, was quoted last April during the first-ever National Junior Ranger Day.

Visit the National Park Service Junior Ranger Zone to learn more about its fun and educational programs.
