The Student Conservation Council (SCC) engage their peers and our community in activities to protect and restore land, water and wildlife habitat in the Wood River Valley. All members of the SCC visit Land Trust preserves and conservation easement properties to learn about local conservation.
SCC holds monthly meetings, gives presentations on projects to peers, reports to the Land Trust’s Board of Directors annually and does all the behind-the-scenes work necessary to fund and promote and fund SCC projects. The group is mentored by the SCC Advisory Council, which includes teachers, administrators, botanists and staff.
In addition to being an advocate for our young community, each of those who serve on the SCC to deepen their understanding of river ecology, we partner with a local outfitter for fly-fishing trips a few times per year.
