Sam Maslow's
National Parks
Junior Ranger Site
Sam Maslow has over 300 Junior Ranger badges, patches, and pins.

Hi, welcome to my Junior Ranger Web site.
badges, patches, and pins on my family's 2004
summer trip.  Back then I was in elementary
school.  By now, I have over 325.  I acquired
most of them by completing booklets at National
Park Service units visited on family trips.  Some I
obtained by mailing in completed booklets to
park units and receiving back the badges,
patches, or pins.

The Junior Ranger program became a fun way
to learn interesting facts about nature, animals,
history, and culture, as presented and preserved
in National Park Service units.  

During my four years in high school I lectured to
students in Florida, Ohio, and New York, about
the National Park Service and the Junior Ranger
program.  I started college in Fall 2011.  If you
would like to read more about me, including
about my lectures, please see the "
About Sam
Maslow" and "Lectures" pages (buttons at left).

If you are interested in the Junior Ranger
program of the National Park Service this Web
site is for you! If you are not familiar with the
Junior Ranger program, you can learn about it by
going through my site.

You can start a collection of Junior Ranger
badges and patches without visiting any National
Park Service sites.  You can earn some by mail.
Check out my pages called "
Junior Ranger
Program" and "National Park Service Sites"
(buttons at left) to find out how.

Below are the Junior Ranger badges, patches,
and pins presently in my collection.  It may take a
short time for them to appear so please be
patient.  Double-click them to see larger views.

On July 19, 2011, I was privileged to be honored
by the National Park Service.  At a meeting of
NPS officials I was awarded a certificate for my
work in promoting the Junior Ranger program.

Please note that this site was created six years
ago and updated for several years.  Some
information about individual parks may now be
out of date.

Happy collecting,
Sam Maslow

At a meeting of National Park Service
officials in the Washington, D.C. office
on July 19, 2011, Sam Maslow was
awarded a certificate of excellence for
his volunteer work in promoting the
Junior Ranger program.  Presenting
the award was Peggy O'Dell, Deputy
Director for Operations, who appears
to the right of Sam.  Also pictured are
Mickey Fearn, Deputy Director for
Communications & Community
Assistance, and Diane Chalfant, Asst.
Associate Director for Visitor
Experience.
In 2006, I met Corky
Mayo for the first time.  
He was the NPS
Program Manager for
Interpretation &
Education.  I met him
several times in the
years afterwards,
before he retired.  
Corky Mayo, along with
his assistant Wendy
Davis, worked very
hard to improve the
quality of the Junior
Ranger booklets.   
Because of them the
Junior Ranger program
is a much more
enjoyable one for
youngsters.
