The National Park Service and Girl Scouts of the USA have partnered to create the Girl Scout Ranger Program.  You can participate in the Girl Scout Ranger program through any Girl Scout activity at any national park—with your troop, at an event, or during a camping or travel experience. Girl Scouts can also work collaboratively with NPS employees and take part in educational programs, volunteer and service projects at any NPS site, such as participating in existing educational programs and service projects (Ranger-guided interpretive tours, Junior Ranger programs, Environmental education programs, Web Rangers).

Many national park sites have volunteer programs that can offer Girl Scouts an opportunity to assist in a variety of long-term or short-term service projects to improve and ensure protection of park resources and facilities. Girl Scouts are encouraged to take part in any sustainable organized project, agreed upon by the NPS, as an appropriate service opportunity that protects and preserves park resources.

Girl Scouts and their leaders should contact the park Volunteer Coordinator to select and develop these projects and activities.  After spending five hours at a park participating in activities, you will get a certificate from the National Park Service. Spending 10 hours, you will be awarded a Girl Scout Ranger patch! The Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Barataria Preserve have designed some great workshops and other opportunities to help our girls get started!  More information about the Girl Scout Ranger Program can be found at
