College students look forward to spring break. This rite of the season is usually filled with road trips to great parties, or just time at home relaxing. Fortunately for York River State Park, a group of students from Marshall University in West Virginia decided to take the challenge and opportunity to have an Alternative Spring Break.
The joys of spring cleaning
These young men and women volunteered for some rather unglamorous task such as finishing the floor of the Visitor's Center, cleaning the Ghost Trails costumes, clearing debris from the parking lots, and preparing the boats for the season. But, there time here at the park wasn't all work and no play. The students hiked some of the trails and were particularly of searching for sharks teeth at Fossil Beach. They also took in the sights of the Historic Triangle of Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown.
Volunteers help prepare for the new season
The staff of York River State Park thanks our Alternative Spring Break volunteers for their hard work in helping us prepare for the upcoming season! We wish them all the best in their studies and future endeavors.
