Alternative Spring Break will take place in Memphis, Tennessee, working closely with Living Lands & Waters! Students will have the opportunity to work alongside other student groups, as well as the infamous crew, to clean a tributary of the Mississippi River, which is currently loaded with garbage. Since it was founded, Living Lands & Waters has grown to be the only “industrial strength” river cleanup organization like it in the world. Spending up to nine months a year living and traveling on the barge, Living Lands & Waters crew hosts river cleanups, watershed conservation initiatives, workshops, tree plantings, and other key conservation efforts.
From Sunday, March 13 - Saturday, March 19, Waubonsee students will be able to experience Living Lands & Waters and their efforts on the barge, learn about environmentalism and the impact that high volumes of garbage have on communities, and work together to pull hundreds of pounds of garbage out of McKellar Lake! So far, Living Lands & Waters (and over 108,000 volunteers) have removed over 10 MILLION pounds of garbage from America’s rivers!
