Resource Stewardship Scout Rangers
Are you a scout or troop leader looking for a way to protect and preserve our National Parks while you visit? The Scout Ranger program might be just what you're looking for!
Scouts who participate in educational or park approved volunteer programs or service projects at Cape Lookout and/or other national parks can become Resource Stewardship Scout Rangers.
There are two levels to the Scout Ranger program. Once you have completed the required number of hours, report your work to a ranger or volunteer at the Harkers Island Visitor Center. You can do this by explaining what park approved projects you completed and what you learned about the park or you can show them your completed Scout Ranger Activity Tracking Sheet (this sheet is optional, but is an easy way to keep track of your completed activities and hours)
Scout Ranger Certificate -- Scouts who complete at least five (5) hours working on a service project and/or attending education programs in a park are eligible to receive the Scout Ranger certificate.
Scout Ranger Patch -- Scouts who complete ten (10) or more hours working on a service project and/or participating in educational programs are eligible to receive the Scout Ranger patch.
