The SCA is a national non-profit changing lives through hands-on conservation work in the outdoors. Our program participants protect and restore national parks, marine sanctuaries, cultural landmarks and community green spaces across the country. After working with the SCA, our members emerge with increased environmental awareness, social responsibility and leadership skills.

For over 20 years, the SCA Massachusetts Conservation Corps program members have served Massachusetts’s public lands from the Atlantic Coast to the Berkshires.
