Philmont Boy Scout Ranch


The assistance of the Boy Scouts of America’s Philmont Scout Ranch was invaluable to the NASA astronauts, as they also spent time performing geologic field activities in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

The strong connection between BSA and NASA was exemplified by the presentation of red wool jac-shirts with a black bull to the astronauts, symbolizing the wearer participated on a trek or at the training center at Philmont.
