The Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger

Ages 7-18 whether you are a Cub Scout, Webelos Scout or Boy Scout, the National Park Service has some fun activities for you. For starters, you can become a Scout Ranger and earn a patch. The Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger program invites Boy and Cub Scouts to participate in educational and/or volunteer service projects at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore 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. Scouts are awarded certificates and/or patches for participating in the program.
