Every year, Alcatraz hosts a special Junior Ranger program, which is an educational and interactive program encouraging children to enjoy their time in National Parks. Scheduled for Saturday, November 18, 2017, youth will enjoy several unique benefits, including activity booklets, which correspond to interpretive programs, special ranger walks and other youth specific activities on the Island. Young people between the ages of 6 and 12 can become Alcatraz Junior Rangers. Booklets are free and available at the Alcatraz dock office. Those who complete the booklet receive an National Park Service Junior Ranger Badge. For more information, please visit special events.
