The Resource Stewardship Girl Scout Ranger Program invites Girl Scouts to participate in projects at national parks sites to spark their awareness of the National Parks and Girl Scouting; to provide them with the opportunity to learn more about protecting our natural and cultural resources; and to promote their exploration of natural and cultural resources, environmental science and conservation careers. Girl Scouts can earn certificates and/or patches for participating in the program.

Webrangers - This is the National Park Service's on-line Junior Ranger program for kids of all ages. If you love your National Parks, Monuments and Historic Sites, this site is for you.
