SCA Leaders Jean Bartholomew and Emily Fonti made a guest appearance on CNN this weekend — starring in Morgan Spurlock’s “Inside Man” episode examining the role of young people in National Parks.
Impacts and Outcomes
SCA believes in Leave No Trace. To a point.
Wherever they serve, SCA members always make an impact – one that’s positive, significant and enduring. These young stewards bring a genuine passion to their work, and it affects the both the natural and work environments. Our partners consistently say they draw inspiration from the energy and enthusiasm SCA members bring to the job, and that our young people are poignant reminders of why it’s so crucial to engage a new generation of conservation leaders.
Here are some examples of the difference SCA members are making all across America.
