Each year, a crew of college interns works alongside National Park Service teams during a 35-day program in the wilderness to remove invasive plants, restore abandoned or “social” trails, and remove inappropriate campsites. SCA crews generally survey more than 15 square miles (9,600 acres), walking more than 40 miles in about 30 days. Thanks to their work, natural processes have been restored and ecosystems preserved.
