Reviews, photos and videos for program: Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge Service Work
Ruth from Torrance, CA Number of programs attended: 1

Highly recommend. Opportunities for strenuous or sedentary tasks (demolition of stairs, decking; excavation of oyster nets buried in sand) to archival work @ museum or painting of bookshelves. Every step of the way, supportive, flexible folks who foster atmosphere of commaraderie & can-do attitude. Spectacular scenery out in the refuge. Came away from this feeling relaxed & enthusiastic; enriched & accomplished. Kudos to: Billie, Ennis, staff @ refuge.

If you like carpentry projects, or enjoy doing something for the local Ecosystem, such as exclosures for Piping Plovers, or hopping in a rowboat to clean Swallow Boxes so the birds will re-use them...then this is the program for you. We worked hard, ate well and had a great time, while providing needed help on the Refuge

I've always wanted to see the wild horses of Assateague and Chincoteague. How amazing to share the magnificent island with them -- and learn in depth about the ecosystem, culture, regional cuisine, history, etc. It was a wonderful week made even better because our service projects were fun and made the trip very affordable.
