SCA Northeast

SCA Northeast

Connecticut | Maine | Massachusetts | New Hampshire | New York | Rhode Island | Vermont

This expansive region is home to more than a half-dozen community conservation programs that provide jobs and career training for urban teens, three large conservation corps that provide community outreach plus support for state parks in partnership with AmeriCorps, and the SCA National Conservation Center, our LEED-certified training and operations facility in Charlestown, NH.

Across the Northeast, you are just as likely to meet an SCA volunteer in a local classroom as on the Appalachian Trail; in a NY DEC research lab as on Cape Cod National Seashore.  As SCA addresses the area’s distinctive environmental needs, among the most urgent is the ecological devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.  Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, in partnership with the City of New York, recently charged SCA to lead a youth-fueled, multi-year restoration effort in federal and city parklands affected by the storm.  After just a few months, National Park Service officials stated some parks were already in better shape than they were before Sandy.   That’s the sort of impact SCA members make here every day.

On February 7th, flurries were in the air and over a foot of snow already blanketed Roberto Clemente State Park in the Bronx. But that didn’t stop 65 volunteers from coming out to the riverfront for February’s ConSERVE NYC event.

Everyone (that we asked) is in agreement. This year’s superbowl will be decided by which team is more in tune with conservation, nature, and the great outdoors.

Now, obviously you’re thinking, “You guys. One team has a formerly endangered, sea-faring bird as its mascot, while the other has, what? A Revolutionary War reenactor? This is a no-brainer!”
