As I am writing this I am sitting in the white ARCC van with 14 other people. We just got back from a hike/helping clear non native plants from the hills of California 🙂 At first I was nervous that I wasn’t going to do as well as the other campers, but I proved myself wrong! Also, the fulfillment of taking time to help our environment by doing physical labor is like nothing I have ever felt. It makes me feel like I am more than just a 17 year old girl. We are all making a difference!
