Become a Junior Ranger
If you're between ages 6–12, you can become a Junior Ranger at Red Rock State Park! Pledge to do your part to help preserve the beauty of the park for everyone to enjoy!
On this page, you can download a Junior Ranger activity for this park that you can complete on your own. It's just one of the fun activities you can do to become a Junior Ranger. After you complete it, bring it with you to the park and you're on your way to becoming a Junior Ranger.
When you visit the park ask for a full Junior Ranger booklet at the Visitor Center, Ranger Station or office. Complete the activities during your visit and then bring it to a Park Ranger for review. When a Park Ranger approves your work you'll be asked to take the Junior Ranger Pledge and get sworn in as our newest Junior Ranger. You'll also be given a Junior Ranger Button. We hope to see you at the park!
Activity Sheet Summary
Rules Are Tools!: Here at Red Rock State Park we don’t have a lot of rules, but the rules we have are very important. As rangers, we need to make sure the rules are followed. This keeps our visitors safe as well as the land and animals that we are here to protect! People are more likely to follow the rules if they understand why they are important. Write the number of each rule beneath the picture that shows what could happen if that rule is not followed.
