Service Projects

Summer can be a great opportunity for giving back to your community.

The warm weather lends itself to all kinds of terrific summer service projects. Planting trees, tending community gardens, cleaning up litter, brushing out backcountry campsites and performing trail maintenance are just some of the many ways your Section can get outdoors this summer and make a positive difference at the same time.
