Acadia National Park: Kids! Join The Junior Ranger Program

Spring, Summer, Fall: Maine has many beautiful destinations along its coastline but, none are visited more than Acadia National Park. After one visit to Acadia National Park you’ll realize why so many visitors flock to its rugged coastline. The park was established to preserve this beautiful and popular landscape and continues to shine thanks to the hard work of the Rangers that lookafter it. With visitors numbers growing every year we must insure the longterm beauty and wellbeing of the park by teaching our youth to be good stewards of this amazing landscape. A great way to get the kids involved is through Acadia’s Junior Ranger Program. You can pick up a Junior Ranger booklet at the Visitors Center, Nature Center, or NPS campgrounds. Kids can attend Ranger Programs then fill in activities in the booklet and return the completed book to any park Center. This is a great way to get children to interact with the Rangers, learn about the local plants and animals, and have fun with other kids in a setting based on discovery. If they’ve completed their training and followed the program carefully, they will be rewarded with an official Acadia National Park Junior Ranger patch. More importantly they can teach others what they’ve learned about on of our National Treasures.
