Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger Patches

The National Park Service, the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the United States of America team up to bring you the Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger Programs.

Scouts are awarded a certificate to recognize their leadership development and resource stewardship activities after five hours of service at national park sites. A patch is awarded after ten hours at one or more national park sites.

The National Park Service would also like to congratulate Eagle Scouts with a Certificate of Recognition.
