Sussex School Ecothon
About this Cause
Ecothon is a day of service learning for Sussex Students. By giving back to our community we gain an appreciation for service and an ethic around volunteerism. Our students' work is tangible and assists many non-profits in our community. 2018 service projects include trail work on Mount Sentinel, gardening work at the native plant gardens and the Moon Randolph Homestead, trash pick up, and river clean up. Students collect pledges for their hours of service which support spring field trips and expeditions. Spring Field trips include visits to local farms and wilderness areas, trips to Ravenwood Environmental Learning Center, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, Teton National Park, and a sailing trip to Puget Sound.
