What happens when you take a group of high school students out to the Olympic coast and tell them to help preserve it? The impact is priceless.
This is what the Student Conservation Association does every day: We take young people and show them the power and beauty of nature. Then, we give them the opportunity to do real, hands-on work to preserve those resources. What they get in return is not only a deep connection to nature, but a glimmer of understanding of their power, and responsibility, in protecting nature. It is the beginning of the path towards becoming conservation leaders. Check out the video to see the impact that one summer can have on young people, on Olympic National Park and for the future of conservation.
Thanks to the support of donors and partners, together, the Student Conservation Association is able to provide these opportunities to thousands of young people across the country. We are not only able to protect our most treasured natural wonders, like Olympic National Park, but we are also able to change lives in the process. Thank you to all our supporters and partners.
