Ongoing Events:
Environmental Health & Safety frequently partners with other departments and offices to support major service opportunities.  The interdepartmental sustainability calendar is the best place to find out about upcoming events and learn how to register.  Please check it regularly to stay up to date!  

Geocaching:
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

FGCU has several sustainability-themed geocaches hidden around our campus.  Earn Service Learning hours by maintaining and updating the existing geocaches. This entails checking the caches to ensure they are in the appropriate locations, keeping the logs in order, and monitoring web activity. This project requires a student that can work independently and has access to a smart phone.  The student must also be able to work outdoors, walk on uneven terrain, stoop, and kneel.  Geocaching enthusiast preferred!

Composting:
Maintain our department’s Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler so that we can increase one of earth’s most precious resources: healthy soil.
