Get Ready for Founder's Day!


I want to invest in the conservation and restoration of our parks, public lands, and urban green spaces.

Building the next generation of conservation leaders

7 out of 10 SCA alumni are in careers or studies that make the planet more sustainable.

This year, members volunteered 1.5 million hours of conservation service to public lands.

SCA experiences strengthen life skills that are crucial to prospering in school, work and home.

SCA volunteers served in all 50 states including the top 35 most visited National Park sites and America’s top 12 leading cities.
