Retirees in Service to the Environment (RISE)

The Spring 2014 RISE Program Has Been Completed

The Gerontology Institute, in partnership with the Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences, is pleased to have completed its second season of RISE (Retirees in Service to the Environment), an innovative program that trains retirees about environmental issues and connects them with volunteer environmental stewardship experiences at Ithaca College and in local communities. Topics included health and the environment, climate change, water quality, permaculture, invasive species, citizen science, and planning the volunteer experience.

Check back to  this space again in early spring 2015, to find out how to participate in IC's RISE program.
