SCA Nominated for NPS Director's Award
Oregon | Washington
The Northwest is the birthplace of SCA and since our first volunteers arrived at Grand Teton and Olympic National Parks in 1957, the region has remained one of SCA’s most vibrant and vital.
Our SCA Seattle program provides hundreds of under-served city youth with connections to nature and pathways to careers. And the nearby parks and forests – Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie, Olympic, Mount Rainier, North Cascades – all boast substantial numbers of SCA alumni on their staffs, a testament to the caliber of our members and the commitment of our area partners.
