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.

Life Time Presidential Volunteer Service Award Lapel Pin

The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation recognizes the valuable contributions volunteers make in our communities with the President's Volunteer Service Award to encourage more people to serve. The President's Volunteer Service Award program is a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.

Any individual, family, or group can receive Presidential recognition for volunteer hours earned over a 12-month period or over the course of a lifetime at home or abroad. Awards are based on age of volunteer(s) and hours of volunteer service.
