Join the Scout RanExternal Linkger program with the National Park Service.

 

The Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger program invites Boy and Cub Scouts to participate in educational and/or volunteer service projects at national park sites to spark their awareness of the national parks and to provide Scouts with the opportunity to explore the national parks and learn more about protecting our natural and cultural resources. Scouts are awarded certificates and/or patches for participating in the program.

 

How to Earn a Certificate and/or Patch

Scouts can earn a certificate or patch by participating in:

  • organized educational programs
  • volunteer service projects

To earn a troop certificate, troops must participate for a minimum of five hours at one or more national park sites.

 

To earn a patch, scouts must participate for a minimum of ten hours at one or more national park sites.

 

Qualifying organized educational programs:

  • Ranger guided interpretive tours
  • Junior Ranger programs
  • Environmental education programs
  • Any other official NPS education program

Qualifying volunteer service projects:

Any organized project that helps and enhances the natural and/or cultural resources of a park unit and is identified by the park as an appropriate volunteer opportunity.
