From Living Lands and Waters' website:

Each year, we hit the water during Spring Break to engage college
students in the Spring Break experience of a lifetime. In 2015, we’ll be
returning to the Mississippi River 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 clean-ups (Monday through Thursday) where students can meet the
infamous Chad Pregracke and his boisterous crew of river rats. This
Spring Break experience is guaranteed to leave you with not only the
satisfaction of knowing that you’ve given back to the community, but a
lifetime’s worth of laughter and memories.

Only ten spots are available!
