ASBs are hardworking, dedicated students who want to have meaningful experiences, and give back to the greater good of humanity. They travel from Wyoming and Pennsylvania, Canada and Florida, and include aspiring herpetologists to English majors, business students to engineers, and outdoor enthusiasts to city dwellers. Their typical work week involved volunteering Monday-Tuesday at EVER, Wednesday was a day off to explore the park and surrounding communities, then volunteer at either BISC or BICY on Thursday-Friday. This provided a diversity of experiences in different Parks and volunteer projects. It was a great success.

Even though Spring Break is a high season for Alternative Break volunteers, Everglades National Park also receives Alternative Fall and Winter Break students, too. Are you a college student or know someone that is? Please recommend that they research the possibility of joining an Alternative Break volunteer group and come to the Everglades!
