Volunteering is Fun!

CC Volunteers Burying Data Cable CC Volunteers Burying Data Cable

Hey all you hot spring loving dudes and dudettes!

We want to tell you about the wonderful experience my three friends and I had volunteering with the Orient Land Trust during our short vacation from school. We helped rid the area of an invasive species, which was a rewarding learning experience. We also helped with some fire mitigation and dug a ditch to the collection box to bury a cable that will enable a new alarm system for the hydroelectric plant. Volunteering was such a blast – we were able to give back to a community that we love immensely and learn while we were at it. And who can argue with being able to soak after a long day of labor? We'll definitely be back—it was such a great time full of wonderful new people, beautiful landscapes, and new memories!
