Student Conservation Association

The Student Conservation Association is an organization that offers real world job opportunities for kids in high school and college to maintain and improve our state and county parks, trails, cultural landmarks and other outdoor areas.

Their mission is to build the next generation of conservation leaders and inspire lifelong stewardship of the environment and communities by engaging young people in hands-on service to the land.

In New Jersey, chances to serve this past year being a Shorebird Intern at the Gateway National Recreation Area at Fort Hancock, and being a Biological Technician at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville.

These interns may well become the next generation of environmental caretakers from their hands-on service.
