They will also participate in other events in order to develop an appreciation of the Refuge, so that they can be stewards of this and other places that serve as refuges for nature and wildlife. 


    All events are free and open to the public. Students need to be accompanied by their parent and if not, they need to have the waiver and liability forms signed by their parent. 

    Service for the project is the beach clean-up (9-11).  The learning about the importance of the Refuge takes place in the , Guam Bird Presentation and Nature Center Activities.

They can earn up to 2 hours for beach clean-up and up to 2 hours for the learning aspect. They will earn their additional hour by reflecting on the experience. The Reflection can be in the form of an essay, photographs, or a poster. It should reflect what they did for their service and what they learned as a result of participating.
