A group of 15 PD students and three faculty visited Iceland from June 3-12. The group was involved in different service projects during their time, including cleaning up the beach with the Blue Army. Further North in Mývatn, the group was versed on the initiative that is underway in the municipality, to limit the spread of invasive species, in particular the forest system and lupine. The group spent the day digging up an aggressive, uninvited or hostile plant, the chervil.
The group’s interest in volunteering locally was highly appreciated in Iceland. According to the news release, "they promoted important admirable values of the American heritage and we can all be proud of their performance."
