Under the Advocacy pillar program we have boots on the ground projects such as clean-ups & restoration work as well as watchdogging federal, state and local government agencies for plans, projects, & development that would negatively impact our regional environment. SCA regularly challenges local governments and agencies through direct public engagement and grassroots education and direct actions.



SCA seeks to cultivate an environmentally conscious public that are empowered to be active stewards of our local and regional natural resources, including land, air, wildlife and water resources. SCA’s Environmental Education program has projects that seek to provide environmental education to our local community

Scientific Research


As an organization, SCA is taking a strategic approach to using participatory science projects to strengthen environmental protection. To that end we have worked to build capacity for community-based participatory science by establishing two robust citizen science water quality monitoring programs in the Priest Lake & Priest River Watersheds.
