On this school service learning trip to New Orleans, students will learn about this unique culture while serving the local communities. Disasters come at the most inconvenient times and take people by surprise. In 2005 Katrina hit right at the end of summer. People who were involved in this natural disaster had to deal with a variety of issues including flooding, loss of electricity, extensive structural damage and a variety of other issues. This trip will work with Project Restore and other conservation programs and connect with individuals in New Orleans to not only give back to the affected community but to understand the impact Hurricane Katrina had on the infrastructure and people.
