Girl and Boy Scouts may earn a certificate and patch for their participation in educational and service projects in national parks.
Patches are available at the preserve and certificates can be downloaded by scout leaders via the links below.
Kids can get involved in making a difference in their national parks by participating in five or ten hours of either an educational program or volunteer service project. A certificate requires a five hour commitment and a patch requires ten.
Two brothers earned their Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger patches by assisting the park staff at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in cleaning the Lower Fox Creek Schoolhouse interior exhibits. The boys learned about caring for these special places through their hard work and stewardship. The brothers are part of Cub Scout Troop Pack 65 from New Jersey.
