The Student Conservation Association (SCA) has renewed its North American partnership with Domtar, a manufacturer of fiber-based consumer products. The agreement extends Domtar's support of SCA conservation programs which target under-represented local youth in U.S. and Canadian cities, and positions Domtar as the exclusive sponsor of SCA's annual “Got Dirt?" outdoor photo contest.

Since 2012, Domtar funding has helped to create outdoor service and job opportunities for nearly 5,000 teenagers in urban areas. Hundreds of Domtar employees and SCA volunteers also have joined forces to preserve natural and cultural landmarks near Domtar facilities in the U.S. and Canada.

“From protecting our precious wildlands to improving our local communities, Domtar and SCA are working to ensure that young people are engaged, informed and empowered," says John D. Williams, Domtar president and CEO. “We are not only standing with our youth, we are working alongside them to share our 'Caring' value where it has the most impact – in our home towns."

In recent months, Domtar employees and SCA volunteers have refurbished portions of Parc de la rivière Watopeka in Windsor, Que.; Parc des Rapides in Montreal; and Andrew Jackson State Park in Lancaster, South Carolina.
