Summer Alternative Break applications due March 26

March 10, 2010

Summer alternative break applications are available now until Friday, March 26! Travel this summer with Alternative Breaks and work in the Florida Everglades, Boulder Creek, California or Fairbanks, Alaska to work on environment and conservation projects.

Biscayne National Park and Everglades Hostel

Volunteers will learn about the wildlife and endangered species found in the Florida Everglades.

Students will be removing debris from island beaches to create successful nesting areas for endangered sea turtles, and will also perform a variety of ongoing service projects for the National Park.

YMCA Camp Campbell Outdoor Science School

CCOSS is a residential outdoor education program for fifth and sixth-grade students. CSU volunteers will be staffing the camp for one week, living with the kids and helping CCOSS create an experience that promotes environmental awareness and wise use of our natural resources.

Fairbanks, Alaska Nature and Environment Conservation Project

Volunteering with the Alaskan Bird Observatory, the Calypso Farm and Ecology Center, and with Chena Renewable Geothermal Energy Plant will allow students the opportunity to give back to the area while learning about the impact these types of organizations can have on the environment.

Students will interactively mist net, band, and count birds, aid in farm maintenance projects and gardening, and expand their minds by learning about geothermal energy and wind power.

Applications due March 26

Applications are due to the Office for Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (Lory Student Center, main level, right behind the main Information desk) at 5 p.m. on March 26.
