From Seattle to Milwaukee to DC, SCA volunteers turned out in droves for Earth Day. They gathered on public lands and in urban green spaces to remove gnarly invasives, plant community gardens, drain boggy places, build benches, and affirm their love of the land. SCA led events in Stamford CT, Oakland CA, Pittsburgh PA, Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA, Milwaukee WI, Houston TX, Seattle WA, Washington DC, Boston MA, and Manchester NH.
SCA New Hampshire's Mike Vecchiarelli said of their event: "The Manchester, NH Earthday event can be summed up in two great words: Service Learning; high schoolers participated in the Food Bank gardens, fourth graders created improvements for their schools and neighborhoods; Americorps members provided hands-on support; everyone learned and had some fun while giving to the land and their communities." Congratulations all on a job well done!Truly, as we like to say, conservation begins here.
