At important parks and historic sites, rangers help visitors appreciate and protect the resources of the site. The Lamprey River is in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, but it is not a state park or national park. It does not have paid rangers to work with the public. That’s where Junior Rangers can help.
The Junior Rangers program is for children and families who want to accept the challenge and fun of learning about the river and then share what they learn with others. If people know about the Lamprey River and share their love of the river, people and animals will continue to enjoy the river well into the future.

In 2014, several kids enrolled in Epping's summer recreation program participated in a pilot program for the Junior Rangers. At the end of the program, the children and their counselors created posters that highlighted some of the things they learned.
