As usual, I wouldn't even know where to start to give a full update on what has been going on with the SCA NH corps. With three adult conservation teams, two high school teams, and six Park Interpreters in the field you can imagine the number of great stories, photos, not to mention amount of service and learning that is occuring.
With that little summary in mind, I'll just add that we have just returned from All Corps; a gathering of the Eastern Regional Corps. You'll see the Bear Brookers pulled together to have a great time, meet their fellow SCA friends, and graciously concede the victory horns to the hosts of All Corps, The SCA Adirondacks. Just prior to that we were at Hampton Beach being recognized as the longest standing Americorps program in the state with Volunteer NH. Just before that we had a gathering with the CCC of NH and Maine, launched the Great Parks Pursuit and Discover the Power of the Parks program. Completed "Hitches" in Belmont, Rindge, and Epsom...and the list goes on and on and on...And if you find yourself in the White Mountains this Friday come down to the Auto Road at Mount Washington for the big Weeks Act Celebration! A full day of fun and information on the WMNF.
This team will have its official Recognition Ceremony when the 10 month program concludes for 2011 on October 20.
Last note (with the hopes that someone reads these) please give a shout out if you are a former Bear Brooker (staff, member, participant) and let us know if you are still associated with the SCA and/or still working in conservation in some capacity.
We look forward to hearing from you!
