Where did we get the inspiration for the Ranger Trek Expedition Journal?

When Lewis and Clark undertook their great exploration of what is now the Western United States in 1804-1806, Lewis recorded detailed notes of their expedition in his journals.  His journals are cherished even today.

In that spirit, we created the Ranger Trek™ Expedition Journals as a means for your family to record and journal your expedition of the US National Park Service (NPS) sites as your Junior Rangers discover each park, complete Junior Ranger Programs and earn Junior Ranger certificates.

Your Ranger Trek™ Expedition Journal will become a keepsake that your Junior Rangers will treasure for years in the future as they use their journal to recall their park visits, share them in their school projects and with their own Junior Rangers years from now.
