Eagle Scout Certificate of Recognition

The NPS prioritizes working with partner organizations, such as Boy Scouts of America (BSA), to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation at national park sites.

In addition to these opportunities, the NPS would like to recognize scouts and their achievements and/or accomplishments related to the environment and/or conservation.

Boy Scouts who have completed their requirements for an Eagle Scout award are eligible to receive a certificate of recognition from the National Park Service.

Earn A Certificate

Please click HERE to download the Eagle Scout Certificate of Recognition. (Use of the certificate is based on the honor system, as the certificate should only be downloaded after achieving the Eagle Scout status).

Please note that mailed requests will no longer be accepted after March 30, 2015. All requests postmarked prior to that date will be honored.

Scouts can earn a certificate or patch by participating in the Scout Ranger Resource Stewardship Program that 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.

For more information, visit the National Park Service's Scout Ranger Program page.

Your continued interest in and support of the National Park Service is appreciated.
