Grow as a Leader | PCEI Nature Center Ambassadors (Transportation Provided)
This community engagement opportunity is offered in partnership with The Leadership Center's Grow as a Leader Summer Program.
The mission of PCEI is to increase citizen involvement in decisions that affect our region's environment. Through hands-on volunteering, students will increase their awareness in the areas of watershed restoration, environmental education, and sustainable living.
Opportunity: Students will have the opportunity to learn about their connection to self, others and the community by assisting PCEI staff with beautifying the 26.2 acre PCEI Nature Center-- a public, open space facility. Tasks may include wood chipping pathways, breaking new trail, managing invasive plant species, setting up for an event and more.
Location: CUB L45
Days/Times: Transportation will be provided. Please meet in the CCE Student Resource Center located in the CUB Lower Level L45 at 9:30 AM to meet with your group. We plan to return to campus around 12:30 PM

Service hours are allocated based on amount of direct service participation and do not include meeting time and transportation to/from the service site. Students can expect to receive approximately 2.5 hours of service.
