2019 Service Summary

Ball State kicked off the 2019 Breakaway season in early March, and Saginaw Valley State will wrap it up in mid-December. In between we had students from University of Tampa, Georgia Tech, University of Delaware, a high school group from Maryland, and a junior high school group from Flat Rock River YMCA in Indiana. Almost everyone worked in the Baby Jungle at Sequoyah Museum, and we’re happy to report that the Baby Jungle is 98% cleared of invasive plants! Students also cleared vegetation and small trees from Cherokee burial grounds, built and maintained hiking trails in the Snowbird Cherokee community, volunteered at the Snowbird Senior Citizens Center, cleaned and maintained 180 campsites at Indian Boundary Campground, Dam Creek Campground, and Spivey Campground in Cherokee National Forest and continued with invasive plant removal(privet, English ivy, honeysuckle) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. On homesteading days, dead trees were pulled down, lots of firewood was split, the garden was planted and later in the year cleaned up, and lots of blackberry or strawberry jam was made and went home with the students to put on their bagels, toast, or PBJs.
