Retirees in Service to the Environment (RISE)
The RISE Program Has Been Completed
The Gerontology Institute, in partnership with the Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences, is pleased to have completed two seasons 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.
