Looking to go green this spring break? Plenty of fresh air and hard work await at Sequoyah State Park in Oklahoma.
Participants will help maintain the natural beauty of this regional gem by joining Three Forks Nature Center staff to clean up and restore the park, as well as maintain the extensive natural trail system.
[ASB] was an unforgettable week of hard work with a group of amazing people. What made the week most memorable? My answer would be “communication”. During this alternative spring break trip, I had the chance to communicate with nature and wildlife, with tribes I have never heard of, and with people who share a different background from me. Before the trip, I was stressed with many tasks undone. However, when I arrived at the cabin in the woods, the power of nature drove all my anxiety away. The experience of trading a week of high-tech devices for staying close to nature and wildlife was precious.
