Yuma Trip - Colorado River Restoration Project

2013 Yuma Trip Poster

Sign ups are open. Please visit Nora Pulskamp in CDI.

CDI annually offers students a unique opportunity to visit Yuma, Arizona, the home of the Quechan tribe.

The trip is a partnership with the Tribe and CDI. Students spend a weekend in Yuma taking part in cultural activities, community service and environmental restoration, all while having the experience of a lifetime.

It is essentially a cultural exchange experience and a community improvement project, as the Quechan tribe will play host to students, sharing aspects of their unique culture and customs. Students will participate in the Colorado River Conservation Project, performing the ecology necessary tasks of tree planting and environmental clean up.

For more information about this program, please contact Nora Pmulskap.    

Signs up are on a first come, first served basis. Sign up list is located on Nora's door in CDI. Only 45 spots open for the 2013 trip.
