SCA Houston is now recruiting for our 2011-2012 School Year Program! Our program takes students camping one weekend a month from December through April. On those weekends we do a conservation service project (trail building/maintenance, habitat restoration, etc.), environmental education and outdoor recreation (hiking, kayaking, fishing, archery, etc.). It's a great opportunity for students to earn volunteer service hours, meet new friends from all across Houston, give back to the community and have a lot of fun! In addition, some members that complete the program will be eligible for scholarships to a SCA National Crew and we'll send them out to a National Park to live and work for the summer with students from all over the US.

It was pouring rain, boots were caked in mud, and rain jackets were soaked, but none of Houston’s Conservation Leadership Corps (CLC) members cared as they helped plant their 150th loblolly pine outside the George Bush Intercontinental Airport on Will Clayton Parkway. The students felt a great sense of accomplishment at the end of the day, for they participated in the largest volunteer tree planting in Houston’s history.
