Virtual Programs

Connect with your community by helping conserve the planet! Just because we have to social distance from each other, doesn’t mean have to distance ourselves from the outdoors. Join SCA in online conservation activities that will connect you to the planet and to each other. You can help conserve by creating pollinator habitats, planting a tree, reducing your use, building a garden, and taking a hike! Take action to build a better planet. Originally created in 2020 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.
