Hey everyone! My name is Michael Marchetti and I am from Ellicott City, Maryland which is just about 20 minutes west of Baltimore. Since 2010 I have been interning with the SCA Corps teams and loved every experience it provided me. I started out as a Desert Restoration Intern with the Rands Mountains Team where we literally planted dead plants to prevent off-highway vehicles from creating illegal trails. I then participated on one of the coolest teams ever, the Tour 40 Team. I got to travel across the country to 25 cities with 6 other people in one 40 foot RV and put on a conservation project at each destination. We were also on a billboard in Times Square! ( Never though conservation would end up there eh?) Three days later I then switched gears and scurried down south to participate in the Florida National Scenic Trail Corps Team where I got to work with some dedicated volunteers as well as come acros the greatest tool ever, the suwannee sling!
SCA has given me two of the best years of my life from their corps programs that I kind of forgot to mention I graduated from Ohio University in 2010 with a B.S. in Geography. That’s kind of a big deal right? Anyways, I look forward to working in a close team setting with a new group of people and looking to make new memories in another foreign place.
