July 2012

Dear {Friend},

This month you can experience SCA life in the field without even leaving home, thanks to our Follow Me bloggers.

Follow SCA/NPS Academy member Carlos De La Torre through Grand Teton National Park, Stacey Torigoe across the Harding Icefield in Kenai National Park, and others at Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota and the forests of New Hampshire at followme.thesca.org. Their stories are the next-best thing to being there.

For those who prefer ocean waves to forests, we’ve got a real treat – you can join SCA at the US Open of Surfing, at Huntington Beach, CA. SCA will be hosting a beach cleanup, cheering on spokesperson and pro surfer Lakey Peterson, and giving away a surf weekend with Lakey. Learn the contest details and register today.
