Welcome to the Old Louisville Student Conservation Association!
It's about time that people everywhere start making an effort to protect our planet. Did you know that less than 2% of the water on our planet is fresh water, with over 97% of the water on earth being salt water? How about the fact that Americans account for 26% of the energy used in the entire world? Did you know that experts predict that by 2155 we will be entirely out of coal?
If you live on our planet, saving it should be a priority. At OLSCA our goal is to make an effort to preserve the world we live in not only by taking hands-on action to improve our natural world, but to educatate and create environmental leaders for the future.
Our mission is simple; to build leaders for the next generation that take their conservation responsibility seriously and commit to a lifelong goal of hands-on service to bettering our planet. Participating students range in age from 15 to 19 and share a passion for not only keeping the planet green, but also protecting wildlands, and nature in urban settings.
Students often go on to find rewarding green careers after their time with OLSCA thanks to the invaluable connections they create with green industry leaders, and due to the passion this kind of work instills in young minds.
A lifelong dedication to bettering our planet helps us to better ourselves. Why wait?
