Hands On eNewsletter — August 2013

Dear {Friend},

Each summer SCA sends 1000s of young conservationists to our parks, forests and protected lands to provide much needed support. This year, disaster recovery topped the “to do” list.

SCA’s Sandy Recovery Corps revved up early in response to damage from last year’s hurricane. Park rangers within the disaster zone have noted that SCA crews are leaving their parks in better shape than before the storm!

SCA’s members are used to hearing such praise as they work to preserve our nation’s naturally wild spaces. See why on our Follow Me field blog.

But don’t think that our work is done because summer’s almost over! SCA members are in the field year-round, keeping our parks from being loved to death. See how with the stories below.

“The moment when that first full bucket of dirt coasted almost 200 feet through the trees inspired equal parts wonder and pride. We whooped and hollered each time a bucket successfully arrived instead of getting caught in branches.” More »
