MIIS Net Impact Students Honor Earth Day by Volunteering at Local Middle School
April 23, 2010
On Sunday, April 25 the Monterey Institute of International Studies chapter of the global student and professional organization Net Impact will honor Earth Day with a day of service. From 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m., Institute students will get their hands dirty in the Hilton Bialek Biological Sciences Habitat at Carmel Middle School on Carmel Valley Road. Students will help prepare the habitat for their annual native plant sale, transplanting, up-planting, watering, mulching, weeding and more. The event, which will end with a pizza party in the habitat’s kitchen area, offers MIIS Net Impact students a chance to give back to the local community in a concrete and meaningful way.
