Hello!! My name is Mitch and I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is my forth year serving for the SCA. My first crew took place in Dinosaur National Monument, Colorado/Utah and from then on I knew that the SCA would be an important part of my life for a long time to come. After my first high school crew I served as a member of SCA's International high school crew the following season in the North Cascades National Park, Washington and Skagit Provincial Park, British Columbia. As high school ended and I entered my first year at Penn State University as a Parks and Recreation Major to pursue a career in adventure based leadership I knew that I wanted to continue on with trail work. Last season I served as a member of the SCA's Trail Corps team in Manti-La Sal National Forest, Utah. Trail Work and the culture that goes along with it are very dear to me. Bringing individuals together from all across the country and world to be apart of something so special is incredible. When you look back at a days work on the trail and see what your crew has accomplished it's a feeling very unique from anything else, and can only be described with a full hearted smile. I look forward to this summer's work and the great group of people I'll be sharing this experience with.
