And a Bit of Fun Too!

Many of you have received news of professional visits to the state and national capitols, USAID, the International Finance Corporation, field visits to farms, water systems, and labs, but we are 

also spending recreational time! With the help of Pablo Guzman Vargas our talented Technical Advisor, Fellows have traversed the northern part of California in search of national seashores, corn mazes and pumpkin patches, as well as the group favorite, Vacaville Premium Outlets. During orientation, the group took a trip to Lake Tahoe to enjoy the splendor of our local environment.

Giving Back is also fun. In addition to our Chico service learning trip, the group relished opportunities to give back, participating in:

The Apartment Move-out Waste Reduction Program (AMOWRP) for the City of Davis - helping rescue useful furniture before being discarded, so that they could be reused by local residents and community organizations.

Putah Creek Cleanup Day - removing waste and debris to improve the health of the watershed

Yolo county  Meals on Wheels - groups deliver nutritious meals to community members who are no longer able to make for themselves.
