Service learning is much more than community service. It can influence a student's life in a substantial way and maybe even change the world. Students from four different schools in three different locations learn about local environmental issues and commit to making a difference in their community. Some of the projects include collecting data at an artificial reef, restoring native trees in the wetlands of Florida, repopulating ancient oyster beds, and cleaning up water ways.
