Did you know that there is a program designed just for the Girl Scouts of America as well as the Boy Scouts within the National Park Service? There is! You can be exploring the sites and parks we all love while earning certificates, badges, and patches.The Park Service even encourages scouts to develop new programs in collaboration with other NPS employees. What a great way of learning about the heritage of the area and advancing in scouting.
Here in the Heritage Area, several of our sites are Community Partners with the Girl Scouts; meaning they may offer special programs for scouts, or take part in the Girl Scout “Journeys” program. Some of these sites also offer programs for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts!
Going for your Gold Award in Girl Scouts, or maybe your Eagle Scout project in Boy Scouts? Think of heading out into the Heritage Area to find a project that would help you reach your goal. There have been several quality Eagle Scout as well as Gold Award projects completed within the 41 counties.
