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 community and greater world. Below is a list of upcoming service opportunities at Pfeiffer that include outdoor elements.
Outdoor Programs Highway Clean-Up
Join members of the Pfeiffer community to pick up trash along the adopted section of Hwy. 52 in front of Pfeiffer. 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.
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.
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. Several service days are scheduled each semester and are posted on our upcoming events page.
Wayeh, Alaskan Malamute Kennel & Tennessee Alaskan Malamute Rescue (TNAMR),
For the past four years, COL has spent several days each year serving this kennel as part of a fall or spring break outdoor adventure experience. Students have built a 30 X 60 concrete pad and then built 6 kennel runs on top of the pad; bathed and groomed countless number of dogs; socialized rescued dogs and puppies; and learned what it means to be a responsible dog owner and dog breeder. The next scheduled service outdoor adventure experiences to Wayeh are scheduled for Martin Luther King Day 2014 and Spring Break 2014.
