Alabama | Arkansas | Florida | Georgia | Louisiana | Mississippi | Oklahoma | Texas
SCA has a long and storied history in Gulf Coast states. Our members helped the Everglades come back after Hurricane Andrew, have played vital roles in protecting endangered sea turtles, and today are contributing to the region’s ecological recovery from the Deepwater Horizon spill.
We partner with hundreds of area parks, forests and refuges to protect the Gulf area’s unique natural and cultural sites from climate change, habitat encroachment, invasive species and more. We also collaborate with the region’s academic institutions – including its many historically Black colleges and universities and Hispanic-serving schools – to ensure that all local students have access to the Great Outdoors, green job opportunities and a prosperous future.
