Service Learning Trip to South Africa

for both students & community members

Join us this May and June on the South Africa trip which includes spending time in both Cape Town and Kruger National Park. 

This year students and lifelong learners will continue working with the South African National Parks and Southern African Wildlife College, and will be researching and implementing data-driven conservation and community based natural resource management projects, in order to further conservation and environmental protection in the region.


The project work will also be supporting local schools.  Please consider joining a community initiative that supports 4 pre-schools, several elementary schools and secondary schools, 2 day care centers, community and school gardens, and a handicapped care center.
