Filipe Medeiros created this for the SCA/Mazda Conservation in Action Contest but was not able to submit before the deadline. Even though it's not included among the contest submissions that are currently being reviewed, we thought you'd like to see it.
SCA officially broke ground on Tuesday, November 13, 2007, for a much needed new building at the Charlestown Headquarters. Over the coming weeks and months, we will document the process with photos and information about the steps that we are taking to assure that this structure is very green.
Nate Tyler wants to invite you to "the dark side."
Tyler, an SCA alum and one-time Google spokesperson, is taking on global warming with Lights Out San Francisco, a grassroots campaign to get locals to turn off their lights between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 20. Landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the TransAmerica Tower have all agreed to pull the plug.

Remember the computer game "The Oregon Trail?" The one in which your wagon caravan never actually reaches the Oregon coast â€˜cause everyone, including your cattle, die along the way? Well this past weekend, I actually got to walk along the same trail used by thousands of Americans who headed west in search of "greener pastures." And although we didn't see any dead cattle, we did have a great time revamping Boise's stretch of the Oregon Trail.

August 19 - 22, 2007 -- The gathering started off slowly as alumni began to fill up the campsite. We weren't the only ones arriving at Yellow Pines, as our first black bear sighting occurred before 7pm. It meandered along a fallen tree and checked out Rob's tent on the edge of the forest, squashing his straw hat in the process. The bears were to be an exciting part of the upcoming 3 days.
