As the Center for Outdoor Leadership embraces the concept of servant leadership, it is our goal to provide students with engaged opportunities of outdoor service in the local and greater communities. Below is a list of past service opportunities at Pfeiffer that included environmental stewardship and accountability.
Wings of Eagles Ranch
Wings of Eagles ranch is an equestrian therapeutic and outdoor adventure center located 20 minutes from Pfeiffer. The ranch provides the unique opportunity to exercise one’s mind and body. COL staff and the greater Pfeiffer community provide service to the ranch in a variety of ways. If you have interest in horses, working with special needs individuals, farm work, and/ or adventure activities. Please contact the Director of Outdoor Leadership.
Wayeh - Alaskan Malamute Kennel
There is something about college students and their love for animals, especially big furry dogs. For the past 4 years, COL has spent several days each year as part of a fall or spring break outdoor adventure experience serving the kennel. Sidney Sachs is the responsible owner and breeder of Wayeh Kennel and Tennessee Alaskan Malamute Rescue program. Students have built a 30’ X 60’ concrete pad and then built 6 additional kennel runs; bathed and groomed countless dogs, socialized rescued animals, and learned what it means to serve. www.wayeh.com
Lake House Service Days
Come join us for a day of outdoor work at the Gibson Lake House. Groups will complete projects related to landscaping, construction and cleaning. Contact the Director of Outdoor Leadership for service day dates each semester.
Join members of the Pfeiffer community to pick up litter along the Pfeiffer Universities adopted section of Hwy 52. This road is frequented by much traffic and becomes littered often. Please wear work clothes and bring plenty of water. Gloves, trash bags and caution vests will be provided. To help, meet in front of Stokes Student Center at the assigned time. Dates will be announced at the beginning of each semester.
