The trip is full, please check us again soon. Thanks a lot for your interest.

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.
