A Woman's Work

With generous support from Comic Relief US, the SCA launched its first Black Women’s Conservation Crew for young adults in Atlanta this summer. This crew of 12 is a safe space for women of color to learn, grow, gain new technical skills and explore careers in environmental conservation.
