Cross-Cultural and Conservation Service
Service projects are a core component of Deer Hill’s programs, and often described by participants as the highlight of their expedition. We believe that service projects exemplify the spirit of Deer Hill’s philosophy, and inspire people to connect across cultural boundaries, as well as with their own communities. Most service projects are arranged in partnership with families and community leaders in Navajo Nation, or in Zuni or Hopi pueblos. Some expeditions contain service projects arranged with the federal land management agencies, the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Participants in summer expeditions will receive certificates stating their service credit hours for use toward school or other requirements.
