• Resource Stewardship Girl Scout Ranger Program
Girl Scouts of the USA is collaborating with the National Parks Service to offer girls a chance to explore our wonderful National Parks while earning Girl Scout Recognitions. The Girl Scout Ranger program engages Girl Scouts in educational, volunteer service or action projects in national parks. Through participation in the program, girls discover a lot about themselves and the uniqueness of national park sites and what they help preserve; girls connect by working with National Park Service staff or volunteers and each other to determine what they can do to help protect these resources; and girls take action by implementing projects that develop them into leaders and help the parks. Girl Scouts earn a certificate for participating in activities at a National Park for a minimum of five hours and can earn a patch with a minimum of 10 hours.
Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland is home to four National Parks:
Fort Scott, Fort Scott, Kansas
George Washington Carver, Diamond, Missouri
Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Van Buren, Missouri
Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, Battlefield, Missouri
