Conservation Leadership Corps

SCA Conservation Leadership Corps

Get your hands on service to the land!

Age group: Grades 9-12
Geographic area: Greater Seattle Area

Are you ready to make a commitment to the environment on a monthly basis? Participants in the Conservation Leadership Corps work in crews of twelve students from the Seattle area doing conservation service projects one weekend a month January-May and then spend 15-35 days camping during the summer. You'll improve the environment by restoring local parks with monthly service projects and spend time with wildlife such as salmon, eagles, ancient trees, sea creatures, beaches, and glaciers. The following year, crew members can return to help lead new students.
