About sixty college students from across the United States will be taking an eco-vacation in the Grand Canyon National Park during spring break this year. The group will plant thousands of native plants near the Canyon’s south rim in order to return a formerly blacktopped parking area to its natural state.

The students are part of the Student Conservation Association , a nationwide force of conservation volunteers who serve internships in resource management and conservation. The members serve in nearly 500 national parks, forests and public lands annually. Stats for Eco Spring Break Escapes Trending: Older & Mild
