Please join SCA in recognizing the accomplishments of our Excelsior AmeriCorps members at the 1st Annual Excelsior Corps Recognition Ceremony! SCA partners, supporters, alumni, friends, and family are invited to attend a ceremony hosted by SCA in Madison Hall at Morrisville State College, followed by a light lunch. 

The Excelsior Conservation Corps is a New York State AmeriCorps program recruiting members for Year two of the program starting January 30, 2017.  In Governor Cuomo’s 2015 State of the State Address, he proposed the creation of a modern day version of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) called the Excelsior Conservation Corps (ECC). The Student Conservation Association was selected to operate the Corps under the auspices of the NYS Commission on National and Community Services and in partnership with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYSEFC), and SUNY Morrisville. During their term, members work with the NYSDEC and NYS OPRHP to complete environmental stewardship projects on public lands that aid in the protection of natural and recreational resources, thus helping to sustain these resources over the long term for the benefit of the community. 

WHEN: Thursday November 10th, 2016. Ceremony begins promptly at 11am.
