Alternative Spring Break Students Pitch In and Learn About Mountaintop Removal

Mar 15, 2017

University of Miami and University of Connecticut students converged on Coal River Mountain Watch for spring break, learning about the ongoing devastation by mountaintop removal and fixing up our back yard and future hemp field at the Judy Bonds Center. Hamilton College students arrive today. While so many students go to a warm beach for a carefree week of fun and games, we appreciate those who leave a warm beach (or anywhere) for serious learning and community service in the snow. Please contact us if you'd like to bring a group to learn about extreme extraction firsthand on the front lines, or do service projects in Appalachian communities.
