Alternative Break Summer

UT students will have an opportunity to serve in Glen Rose, TX  in Summer 2017 through the AB Summer program!

Wildlife Education and Conservation

Interested in wildlife, conservation, poaching issues and endangered species? Want to kick off summer break by doing some service with animals? Want to meet fellow students with similar interests as you? Join us for the first ever Alternative Summer Break Trip that UT has to offer. We will be traveling to Glen Rose, Texas to serve at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. This 1,800 acre non- profit wildlife center is home to over 1,000 animals. To be more specific, 50 non- native and native species ranging from black and white rhinos, giraffes, zebra, cheetahs, bison, and more. We will be doing a variety of tasks and learning more about wildlife education and conservation.

The same basic principles of the Alternative Break Program apply!

Selection for the trip will include an application and interview process. The trip will cost participants $500, with multiple fundraising opportunities available. This includes: lodging, food, flight, and materials. Flights will most likely leave from Knoxville, TN.  Feel free to contact with any questions.

Applications are now closed. Please consider our AB Local experience in April.
