Some of the richest experiences that ENVS students get to partake in is volunteer activities. From day-long to year-long volunteer work, ENVS students get the chance to do it all, giving them the opportunity to take what they are learning in the classroom and put it to work in areas of both the local and global communities.
To give a few examples:
Rebecca Webster: New Zealand Conservation Volunteer
Rebecca, the department's fearless reporter, work/study student and combined Environmental Studies/Journalism major was awarded a Commit-to-Change Award to travel to New Zealand with International Student Volunteers, where she worked on conservation projects addressing habitat restoration and endangered species preservation. She also got the chance to explore the extraordinary environments and culture of the "Land of the Long White Cloud" (the Maori name for NZ). Read about her fantastic experiences on her blog.
