“Junior Ranger” Program
The Junior Ranger program is a fun National Park Service educational course, which requires touring through various areas of the park, listening to a ranger talk, and completing worksheets. The course completion is rewarded with a ceremony receiving an official patch and a photo taken with a ranger. It is geared especially for children and those young at heart, who wish to become “Junior Rangers” while learning about YSNP or GTNP.
This is a tour option, incorporated into most of our existing full day tours, requiring some slight route modifications in order to complete the course. A participation fee is charged which covers the cost of the workbook and souvenir photo
(fun facts: The cells which make up moose and elk antlers are the fastest growing animal cells in nature. Antlers can grow up to an inch a day and are shed annually.)
