The Student Conservation Association teamed up with American Express to bring over 400 volunteers to Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx for Earth Day service.
Dear SCA Community and Ambassadors,
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, SCA has cancelled its upcoming “Earth Month” events in keeping with new guidance by by federal, state, and local authorities.
We hold the health and well-being of our team, Ambassadors, and friends as our uppermost priority, and we are taking these events off the calendar out of an abundance of caution and in the wake of new guidelines limiting groups to less than 10. Should this policy change, we will reexamine event schedules.
Should you have any questions, please contact Ally, Lukas, or Kelly directly. You may also reach out to the team at [email protected]. Thank you for your ongoing support of SCA, and we hope to see you at a future event.
