Youth Opportunities

Student Conservation Association

  • The Student Conservation Association (SCA) is a privately-funded, non-profit organization that places volunteers in parks, wildlife refuges, forests and other resource agencies around the country.
  • Marsh-Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park enjoys an ongoing relationship with the SCA, and has had a number of SCA volunteers and interns working at the park. High school conservation work crews (with adult leaders) repair the historic carriage roads and trails in the park's forest, fix rock walls on trails, and clear brush. The park has also had SCA Resource Assistants or interns working in the resource management and visitor services departments.
  • To become a part of the SCA, please visit them at www.thesca.org.
