CCE offers spring break service opportunities

PULLMAN  – WSU’s Center for Civic Engagement is offering two community-service learning projects during the 2008 Spring Break.

These two trips will allow the WSU community to not only give back to others both in-state and out, but also allows participants to build new relationships with others in a positive environment.

“West Side Spring Break Clean Up” gives the WSU community a chance to travel to the West side of Washington March 8-12 to learn about, repair and restore the buildings and agricultural lands affected by December’s heavy rains that resulted in the Chehalis River flooding. Transportation, food and lodging are provided for students. Space is limited and early registration is strongly suggested.

“Eco Adventure at Death Valley” takes participants to California March 7-16 with trained staff from University Recreation, representatives from the Bureau of Land Management and the non-profit group Friends of the Inyo. While there, participants will camp and explore the desert environment while restoring the canyon lands.

The Death Valley trip costs $225 for University Recreation members and $265 for nonmembers but includes travel, equipment and food. Registration ends March 4 and the pre-trip meeting will be at 6 p.m. March 4 in the Outdoor Recreation Center.

To register for a trip, or for more information, sign up at the CCE in Smith Gym 212, call the CCE at 509-335-7708 or visit cce.wsu.edu.
