National Park service award time line

A scout visited 3 national parks this summer, two as a Tiger (May and June) and one after Scoutbook advanced him to Wolf (August). Can the scout count the time spent at the parks as a Tiger toward his National Parks Award or only the visits after he became a Wolf?

@KathrynHeller - I think the award requirements are more than just visiting a national park. I will need to look at them closely to see if there are rank specific limits.
I checked the NPS site and found no rank limits but there are more to the award/patch requirements than just visiting the park.

Yes, all time counts. The award is not rank specific.
