Our Service Learning Programs include :
B.) Crocodile Grant A collaborative project with the Crocodile Lakes National Wildlife Refuge
in North Key Largo, Florida where students increase public awareness of the ecological importance of the tropical harwood
hammock to the South Florida ecology and eliminate misconceptions about the american crocodile, an endangered species
that is indigenous to the area. They also develop tools (Geographical information Systems Map) and educational resources
that assist the Refuge with providing enviromental education and with tracking animal movements, identifying population trends,
and reporting information to other agencies.
