Limestone County

Alabama: Field Studies in America's Amazon

Established an environmental education program for students to contribute to the community, build problem-solving skills and identify career paths, become water chemistry certified through AWW, get certified in Wilderness First Aid , take part in citizen science initiatives such as Hudson Alpha’s Bicentennial Barcoding project, learn map reading, compete in the State Evirothon competition, rappel down an 85 foot cliff face, kayak out to the champion cypress, follow a botanist through a carnivorous plant bog, and consult with experts on topics of personal interest.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (V.I.T.A.) Program

The project provided needed income tax services to the elderly and low income residents at no cost to the taxpayers. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program was dedicated to protecting families and elderly tax refunds - in many cases the largest check that most of the taxpayers receive throughout the year.
