The Northwest is the birthplace of SCA and since our first volunteers arrived at Grand Teton and Olympic National Parks in 1957, the region has remained one of SCA’s most vibrant and vital.
Our SCA Seattle program provides hundreds of under-served city youth with connections to nature and pathways to careers. And the nearby parks and forests – Mt.

This year, Seattle Parks and Recreation, together with community partners such as the Student Conservation Association, are coming together to raise awareness around trails and to restore and maintain them.
