Write a Letter

In these days of online petitions and emails, you’d be surprised how effective a sincere letter can be.  At SCS, we rely on our members to help us influence decision makers to make smart choices when it comes to the environment and sustainability.


For much of its history, the Sitka Conservation Society was entirely a volunteer organization, and volunteers are still essential to the work we do.  SCS relies on volunteers throughout the year for everything from solitude monitoring in the Wilderness to cleaning up after our annual wild foods potluck to writing letters to members of Congress.
