Scout Ranger and Girl Scout Ranger program.

The National Park Service cooperates with the Girl Scouts of America and Boys Scouts of America with the Girl Scout Ranger and the Scout Ranger programs, respectively.

The Resource Stewardship Boy Scout Ranger (Scout Ranger) program invites Boy Scouts to participate in educational programs and or volunteer service projects at national park sites, in order to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the National Park Service mission and conserving the nation's natural, cultural and historic resources.
  • Explore the national parks.
  • Practice good citizenship and kindness.

  • Spark girls' curiosity and interest in conserving wildlife and our natural and cultural resources.
  • Increase visitation and attract diverse Girl Scouts to national park sites.
  • Promote environmental science and conservation career exploration.
  • Empower girls to protect our national park sites through sustainable volunteer service or action.

Ulysses Grant narrowly missed Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Mr. and Mrs. Grant were invited to Ford Theater with President and Mrs. Lincoln. However, he and his wife decided to travel to New Jersey to visit their children instead. Had Grant attended, he may have been a target as well.
