The Student Environmental Alliance spent a weekend in the woods volunteering at Camp Tockwogh, a nonprofit summer program geared to help children understand their ecological relationship with the world.
Hot off its outreach program for children at the Kent County Public Library, the Student Environmental Alliance teamed up with the Wilderness Adventure Club for a weekend of wilderness exploration and service. The groups spent two nights at YMCA’s Camp Tockwogh, helping to rebuild stables and mulch a program area, followed by watershed restoration with Project Cleanstream at Mount Harmon Plantation.
The Student Environmental Alliance teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to build boxes for raised garden beds using salvaged wood pallets. The garden promotes campus sustainability and presents an opportunity for collaboration between Washington College and the Chestertown community.
The Student Environmental Alliance at Washington College teamed up with the Sassafras River Association to protest the proposed Rubble Dump for the headwaters of the Sassafras River. The Rubble Dump was not on the agenda for this meeting, but the protest was to ensure that this issue is not forgotten or pushed aside. The Sassafras River Association and concerned residents have been working tirelessly to fight this proposition and plan to continue to do so until it is resolved.
