Girl Scouts Earn National Park Service’s Junior Ranger Badges

Girl Scouts is continuing our partnership with the National Park Service and the Girl Scout Ranger program, inviting girls to play outdoors, learn about national parks and why they’re preserved, and develop essential leadership skills.

The next day, the troop traveled to Badlands National Park and learned about black-footed ferrets, prairie dogs, the Mosasaurus, and earned the Badlands Junior Rangers Badge there as well.

Summer is a perfect time to get out there, take in the sites, and explore all our National Parks have to offer. Learn more about this exciting partnership with the National Parks Service and how your girls can earn their Junior Ranger Badge too!
