Thank youuuuu Dallas! The Tour 40 team just kicked off the Conservation in Action Tour and wished Southwest Airlines a happy 40th birthday by celebrating in true SWA and Student Conservation Association (SCA) style with three different service projects and a huge party…in an airplane hangar. Gotta LUV working with an airline company!
 
At 6:30 Friday morning, after scarfing down the hotel breakfast buffet that we all had come to know and love, the SCA team donned yellow staff shirts and was ready to divide and conquer…our three Dallas service projects, that is.
 
Diana and Becca were leaders at the Texas Trees Foundation, the largest urban non-profit tree farm in the nation, where over 300 canyon blue clad volunteers arrived at 8 a.m. to the sounds of a DJ, SWA CEO Gary Kelly, and the sight of over 500 trees ready for a new home. Becca took charge of showing volunteers how to repot trees that had outgrown their planters, and Diana worked with a group who dug holes for larger trees. All in all, after a flurry of activity from eager volunteers, a month’s work was done in only a couple of hours.
