Our New York City presence continues to grow
Hundreds of high school students participated in SCA’s Sandy Recovery Program at Gateway National Recreation Area this summer, while dozens more college students and recent graduates served as members of SCA’s Hudson Valley Corps.
But the SCA experience doesn’t end with one term. This year, SCA is inviting alumni, partners, and members of the public to take part in ConSERVE NYC, a series of service events across the city. With Saturday conservation projects at new sites across the NYC region each month, ConSERVE NYC offers volunteers the opportunity to help build resiliency in New York City’s public lands—and to network with others who share an interest in urban conservation.
Join us over the next 12 months as we come together to ConSERVE NYC.
