POSTPONED–NYC Conservation Service Project

Saturday, November 3, 2012 - November 3, 2012 10:00 am

Because of the ongoing effects of the storm, SCA has decided to postpone this service event to allow people to focus on the hurricane recovery efforts in the area. We do plan to reschedule the alumni event in the next coming weeks and will post those details when available

If you are still able to volunteer this Saturday, NYC Parks and Rec has asked that we direct volunteers to their website:

There are many parks in each borough that need volunteers to help with the clean-up and aftermath of the hurricane. Please let us know if there is any way we can help in your service to the city during this time of need.


Please join the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and NYC’s Natural Area Volunteers for a half day of volunteer service on Saturday November 3rd in Brooklyn, NY!

We will be planting native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous material at Fresh Creek Preserve in order to maintain the livelihood of this restored ecosystem.

Please come dressed in closed-toed shoes, long pants and clothing that can get dirty. Water coolers and snacks will be provided by SCA but please bring your own water bottles and bagged lunch!
