The Northwest is the birthplace of SCA and since our ﬁrst volunteers arrived at Grand Teton and Olympic National Parks in 1957, the region has remained one of SCA’s most vibrant and vital.
Locally-developed initiatives addressing area-speciﬁc needs include our SCA’s NPS Academy workforce development program with the National Park Service, the SCA-AmeriCorps Salmon-Challis National Forest Training Center, and Base-to-Basecamp initiative for dependents of military families at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Our SCA Seattle program provides hundreds of under-served city youth with connections to nature and pathways to careers. And the nearby parks and forests – Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie, Olympic, Mount Rainier, North Cascades – all boast substantial numbers of SCA alumni on their staffs, a testament to the caliber of our members and the commitment of our area partners.
