Earth Day festivities have begun: SCA Seattle and Manchester

SCA’s Earth Day kick off events in Seattle and Manchester were huge successes. Hundreds of people came to engage in hands on conservation work in community parks. These hands-on service events were led by SCA members who engaged the local community in giving back to Mother Nature in celebration of Earth Day.

SCA Earth Day events are still underway. Join us for events on Sat, April 21st in communities across the country. RSVP today at www.thesca.org/events. Can’t attend an event? Check out other ways to support SCA and celebrate Earth Week.

SCA Seattle Earth Day

SCA Seattle Earth Day kicked off its event with a rally and motivating speeches from local SCA members and local parks enthusiast including Acting Superintendent of Seattle Parks & Recreation Christopher Williams and former Congressman and Gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee. The youth led event was attended largely by young volunteers from high schools and colleges in the area. Nearly 200 volunteers completed 800 hours of conservation work at the UW Arboretum in Seattle. Volunteers were able to remove 15,000 sq ft of invasives; they salvaged 6.5 trailer loads of ferns, repotted 118 ferns and mulched 150 ft of trail. Check out the great work!

SCA Manchester Earth Day

Over 300 people attended the Earth Day event at the Massabesic Audubon. The SCA high school community program, SCA Manchester, led the planning and work projects for this beautiful sunny day in April. The SCA NH members spread out throughout the community gardens, sifting compost, turning beds, planting garlic bulbs, laying mulch and much more. Two of the high school students put on a public presentation about the program and why it is so special to them. The public rolled in and out throughout the day, pitching in at the gardens, building bird house, enjoying live music, storytelling, and engaging the SCA NH Corps in demonstrations of the service learning projects that have been completed in the Manchester elementary schools.
