Discover what being a Junior Ranger is all about!

Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands offers five fun-filled activity booklets that kids of any age can enjoy. Pick up your free booklet at the district ranger office of the area you plan to visit or download one below. 

Junior Ranger booklets 

Each booklet has a theme and explores a few of the key resources that make each of these locations special. Animated characters, complete with animal sidekicks, guide kids through fun activities. Content is designed to connect children with their public lands and introduce them to possible Forest Service career paths.  

One featured character is Frank Winter Hawk with his trusty horse Sunkawakhan. Frank is honored to work in conservation and care for the land, just like his Lakota ancestors did. Frank, like all of our avatars, appears throughout the booklet to share knowledge and inspire the next generation of stewards.
