Our Projects

Alternative Spring Break


Each year, we hit the water in the spring to engage college students in the spring break experience of a lifetime. To date, we’ve worked with 1,884 college students from all over the country to remove over one million pounds of trash!


In 2019, we will be working in Memphis, TN where students will traverse the river on foot and in boats while working closely with our crew and fellow students. Living Lands & Waters hosts several week-long cleanups (Monday through Thursday) where students have the opportunity to meet the infamous Chad Pregracke and his boisterous crew of river rats. During our 2018 program, students rocked it and removed 38,153.5 pounds of garbage from the Mississippi River banks!!

2019 ASB Dates:

Week 1: March 3rd – 8th

Week 2: March 10th – 15th

Week 3: March 17th – 22nd
