Looking to go green this spring break? Plenty of fresh air and hard work awaits at Sequoyah State Park in Oklahoma. Participants will work with Three Forks Park Nature Center staff in park improvement projects including, but not limited to, trail maintenance, painting, basic carpentry and other projects as requested by the park manager. Students may also learn about native wildlife and how to preserve natural animal and plant habitats.
The experience built into me a part of something I had not realized I was capable of before, the desire to be held responsible for my work and my deeds. To give our time and our service to preserve the natural beauty of the park and allow visitors and volunteers like us to enjoy the park for generations to come seemed like a much bigger calling worth far more than what we could do in a week.
