As Spring Break begins, many college students flock to snowy slopes or warm sunny beaches to relax. There are, however, a select few who choose to embark on an Alternative Spring Break (ASB) and for some, this means coming to Everglades National Park. This year, students from such institutions as Jackson College, Vanderbilt and Rice University came to Everglades ready to make a difference in this unique, one of a kind place.
