A trip to the beach or manual labor doing work around a Virginia State Park? That is the choice 11 college students are making for their spring break this year.
College students from the University of West Florida will be traveling to Claytor Lake State Park on Monday, March 8, 2010, to volunteer for a week during their spring break vacation.
The students will have a brief orientation starting Tuesday morning, March 9 and then hit the trails to start work. Their week will consist of a variety of work around the park which include: tree thinning, trailhead kiosk installation, shoreline cleanup, fire line placement, landscaping, prep campgrounds for opening, and interior painting of campground and picnic area bathhouses.
Any one interested in volunteering at Claytor Lake State Park needs to contact the main office at 540-643-2500.
