SCUBA/Snorkel Club Travel to Florida and Georgia
During spring break, the University of Mount Olive SCUBA/Snorkel Club traveled to Crystal River, Florida to expand their knowledge on aquatic life and to obtain their Open Water certification. The club visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater, Florida (the home of Winter the dolphin), and swam with manatee and other aquatic species. Four members (Dr. Mickael Cariveau, Dr. Jason Pajski, Kasyn Sturgill, and Megan Bucek) all became certified. The club also did a community service project by partnering with the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge to remove trash from the river. The trip was a huge success!
