Service-Learning

Service Learning

Environmental Service

One of Eckerd's principle values is the environment. To learn about this value students participate in a variety of environmental service-learning projects. These projects include habitat restoration, beach cleanups, organic farming, and recycling. Whether the task is improving Florida State Parks, planting rows of cauliflower at Sweetwater Organic Farm, or participating in the Recycling Program, individuals gain a unique, hands-on perspective of their natural environment. If you would like to learn more about our environmental service-learning programs or participate in upcoming events, please contact Service-Leaning.
