Every year, SCA provides training, tools and projects that place motivated teens and young adults in the field to effect changes great and small. How do we measure the effects? Sometimes its through decreased CO2 levels or by the tons of trash collected or in the number of trees planted. Our success is also measured by the lessons learned, the perspective gained and the lives we transform—today and into the future. Often when the SCA project is over, the success story is just beginning. Take a look at some of our most recent accomplishments.

When I started my SCA position in August 2010 as a Volunteer Coordinator, I had no idea how critical volunteers were to the operations of the park service. They care for trails, assist visitors, keep the park clean, and a whole host of other things.

This first blog post has been difficult to conceive. I’ve been here for barely a month, and the details of my job – that is, the precise tasks that I will be doing regularly – are still being ironed out. My post is an internship with the Volunteer and Youth Program at North Cascades National Park.

Today we found ourselves canoeing through mangroves, and trudging through Big Cypress National Preserve at the Gator Hook turn off (in case you want to find it because it’s awesome!), for a day full of sun, adventure, and exploring the wilderness.

The canoe trip entailed traveling down the little crest, and out towards the Gulf of Mexico.

Is time, once more, for another round of the Conservation Caption Competition! For round two, we have a photo that you may recognize from SCA’s follow me blog, but only if your memory extends all the way back to 2011.

Comment, either here or on Facebook, with something cleverly resembling a caption by 5 PM EST Monday, 4/22.

My pants, socks, and boots are soaked. I’m tired and slightly embarrassed.
