Gloria Flora – Keynote

This year’s Conservation Commencement address at SCA’s national headquarters in Charlestown, NH was delivered by environmental hero and former U.S. Forest Service Supervisor Gloria Flora. She gave all SCA members who participated in a program in 2008 a conservation charge: “You are the new leaders, coming into your own to replace those confused or missing in action. And we are all waiting for you. Please hurry.”
