January 2011

Dear SCA Friend,
 
To preserve and protect our parks and green spaces, we need people who are connected to nature and who realize its importance to the health of our planet as well as our own well-being.

When SCA introduces young men and women, particularly urban dwellers, to the outdoors, and we witness their transformation...well, that may be the real reason we all work here!

This month we share the story of Danny Nguyen, from Oakland, CA, and his unlikely journey. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. If you have a story about conservation transformation, please email me. We're always excited to share a great story.

—Deb Keller, Editor
