The Student Conservation Association
Gain Valuable Experience and Become an SCA Intern
The SCA, or Student Conservation Association is America’s largest national resource conservation organization. SCA provides volunteers of all backgrounds and educational levels with meaningful conservation service internships and volunteer opportunities in our National Parks, National Forests, and other public lands.
Each year over 3,000 volunteers perform 1.5 million hours of service in all 50 states to protect vital habitats, threatened wildlife, and other at-risk resources in our nation’s parks, forests and urban green spaces. This unique experience instills an ethic of conservation and inspires lifelong stewardship that benefits our members, our society, and our environment.
Today, nearly 45,000 Alumni continue to practice the conservation ethic they first encountered through SCA as teachers, resource managers, park rangers, business people and in their personal lives.
Great Basin National Park looks to employ several SCA interns every summer season in the divisions of Resource Management and Interpretation and Education.
