Alternate Fall break trip to Okefenokee NWR

The Trailblazers invite you to a Fall break trip from October 7-10 to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and Stephen C. Foster State Park. The Okefenokee is a diverse place like no other where natural beauty and wildlife coexist. It is the most extensive blackwater swamp in North America, while still being a huge freshwater ecosystem.

This trip includes amazing service work on both, the land and the water, with recreational activities like hiking, canoeing, and stargazing. For the first time, the Trailblazers will be working on the maintenance of water trails. It is a great opportunity to do some meaningful service, great outdoor adventure, and make friends with your fellow yellow jackets. The detailed itinerary of the trip is listed below.

There are only 10 spots available on the trip. Sign-up today to reserve your spot.

The trip cost is $75.

BeltLine trip with Park Pride and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership

A trip is being planned to join Park Pride and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership on the newly opened West Side Trail for a volunteer workday on October 7th, 2017. This will be a great chance to get out on the new section of trail, do some great work and get an update from BeltLine staff about the progress of the BeltLine.

We will be meeting around 8:30 am Saturday. Depending on the groups preferences we will either be meeting in the Instructional Center parking lot (across the street from the CRC) or on east campus by Smith Residence Hall (across from North Avenue Dining Hall). The event will be from 9-12 in the morning. Afterwards, we will have lunch and take a walk on the Westside Trail.

Check back soon for more details!
