For the third year, Lee County Parks & Recreation hosted University of Georgia students of the IMPACT program for a week-long experiential service learning project last December that resulted in improvements to Matanzas Pass Preserve, Six Mile Cypress Preserve, Imperial River Boat Ramp and JY Linear Trail, plus a visit to Sanibel Sea School. The 19 students and Parks & Recreation staff removed exotic and invasive vegetation to fill more than five, 20-yard-long horticultural containers.
“It’s a great program that gives college students a chance to experience and serve in communities all over the country,” says Vicki Little, a Lee County Parks & Recreation senior supervisor. “The students are ambitious and motivated; they understand the importance of giving and making a difference.”
