DC Area Fall Young Adult Program

Student Conservation Association

About the organization

The Student Conservation Association (SCA) is America’s conservation corps. Our members protect and restore national parks, marine sanctuaries, cultural landmarks and community green spaces in all 50 states.


Join SCA’s DC Area young adult program! This fall there will be two crews working in Rock Creek and Greenbelt National Parks. The crews will be comprised of 4 young adult members (18 years of age or older) and 1 crew leader. These teams will be working in partnership with National Park Service staff to complete necessary projects.

The Rock Creek Park team will be focused on maintaining and restoring two exercise parks at both Carter Barron Amphitheater & along the Rock Creek Parkway Southbound Multi-use trail. The crew’s work will likely include replacing signage and repairing equipment. The Greenbelt team will be focused on restoring a boardwalk trail through the park. The team will also assist with other basic maintenance of the park’s trails.

As long as Covid-19 is a threat, members are expected to do their part to keep their team safe, this includes being mindful of current regulations, regular cleaning and disinfection of tools/equipment, regular health check-ins with staff, and following policy and procedures outlined in SCA’s COVID management plan.
