Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break

SCA and American Eagle have teamed up to host an Alternative Spring in two of the country's most spectacular parks. Choose a week-long service adventure in either Padre Island National Seashore or Grand Canyon National Park.

Volunteers at Padre Island will set up a front country camp near headquarters and work together to construct a universal access boardwalk to the beach, while others will set up a primitive camp on the seashore and spend their days constructing an addition to the turtle research ranger station. Session one runs from 3/8/08-3/15/08 while session two
runs from 3/15/08-3/22/08.

At Grand Canyon, volunteers will set up camp at Mather Campground on the South Rim and spend their days hiking along some of the Canyon's most beautiful trails while carrying out important vegetation projects, as well as removing graffiti from some of the Park's most important cultural sites. Dates for the Grand Canyon project are 3/15/08-3/22/08
and 3/22/08-3/29/08.

SCA will provide a $400 travel reimbursement as well as food and transportation within the park. However, volunteers must purchase their own travel to and from the airport, as well as bring personal gear such as a tent, sleeping bag, and pad.
