Celebrating the finale of Pick Up America


Since serving at Yosemite National Park in 2006, SCA alumnus Jeff Chen rehas come a long way – 3,500 miles, to be exact.

Simultaneously troubled and inspired by the trailside trash he saw at Yosemite, Jeff launched Pick Up America, the nation’s first coast-to-coast roadside litter collection campaign, and this Saturday Jeff and his fellow “Pick Up Artists” will conclude their two-year quest in San Francisco.

SCA congratulates Pick Up America for raising litter awareness and removing 190,000 pounds of debris from the nation’s roadways. And SCA volunteers will be there Saturday for the filthy finale!
