Seaside Sustainability

Spend your spring break giving back to the earth by volunteering with the Nature Conservancy. The preserve where we will be working is a globally rare maritime forest ecosystem and treasured community resource. You will be immersed in team-oriented stewardship activities such as trail maintenance, infrastructure improvements, habitat restoration, and other preserve management responsibilities.

Restoration & Exploration at the Coast

Come join us as we care for and explore a 66,306-acre wildlife refuge. This coastal park is part of the National Fish and Wildlife Service and encompasses a few of our crucial barrier islands. Our program allows students to be part of the work that goes into preserving wildlife refuges, which play a key role in our environment.
