American Express and Student Conservation Association present Find Your Park Days of Service

Celebrate the National Park Service Centennial Through Service!

To commemorate the National Park Service Centennial and in support of the Find Your Park campaign, American Express and the Student Conservation Association are partnering to engage volunteers from across the nation in service to our National Parks.

Beginning in August 2015 and continuing throughout 2016, SCA will collaborate with National Park sites to host large-scale volunteer events, dedicating more than 25,000 service hours to restoring and protecting our National Parks for the next 100 years. Join us at an event near you… or join us online as we prepare to celebrate the NPS Centennial and help you “Find Your Park.”

SCA teamed up with American Express on Aug. 25, 2015 to celebrate the 99th Birthday of the National Park Service in Washington, DC. Over 300 guests gathered on the National Mall to gobble birthday cake, make seed balls for local pollinators, and say “hi” to NPS Dir. Jon Jarvis.
