"DC National Mall Jr. Ranger Activities for Kids and Parents"

Kids can get their Jr. Ranger badges in DC! The National Mall is managed by the National Park service and rangers are on hand to answer questions and teach kids and parents about the memorials to visit.

Start either at the NPS webpage to print out a book, or go to the NPS booth near the Washington Monument (recommended because they usually have books). Or ask any of the rangers for a book. Then check out the amazing memorials in Washington DC, answer the questions in the booklet, and turn it in (or mail it in) for your own National Mall badge. Be sure to collect the park stamps at each of the memorials. Have fun!
