Earth Day 2013 Success Stories


More than 1,500 volunteers joined in SCA Earth Day projects nationwide over the last two weekends. Earthsavers of all stripes planted trees in Kansas City, prairie grasses in Houston, and shrubs in Seattle. Bike trails were repaired, hiking trails were cleared, invasives were removed, debris was hauled away, and illegal off-road vehicle paths were closed in diverse locales across the nation, from Joshua Tree National Park, California to Hudson River Park, New York. SCA Earth Day 2013 signature projects were generously supported by title sponsors American Eagle Outfitters, ARAMARK, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Exelon Foundation, Johnson Controls, the NASCAR Foundation, Sony, and Southwest Airlines.

All of SCA’s Earth Day service hours this year were dedicated to the organization’s illustrious founder, Liz Putnam, in honor of her 80th birthday. Stop by our brand-new online Service Wall to wish Liz a happy birthday, pledge service hours for the month of April, and upload service in action photos.
