Fort Vancouver National Historic Site invites hundreds of children each year to become Junior Rangers at their annual Junior Ranger Day event.
Junior Rangers pledge to explore national parks, learn about our nation's land and heritage, and protect the valuable resources of the National Park Service.
Through a variety of children's activities and programs at this event, youth learn about national parks and the people who protect them.
This year’s Junior Ranger Day event will be centered at the national park’s Visitor Center, where youth ages six to 12 can complete three activities to earn a Junior Ranger patch and sticker. Children can make their own mask, inspired by a current exhibit of masks on display at the Visitor Center and their own favorite story book characters, share stories of their ancestors, and find their favorite artifact at the national park. Kids can also complete a Junior Ranger activity booklet at either Fort Vancouver or Pearson Air Museum.
