Reynolds Green Club cleans up "no name creek" as part of Earth Week

The Reynolds Green Club, along with several other student clubs, faculty and staff, cleaned litter out of “no name creek” at the Parham Road Campus on Saturday, April 26.  Twenty-five individuals pitched in for this Earth Week event. Despite undergrowth that was very thick and difficult to move through, over 20 bags of trash were pulled out for proper disposal.

Professor Marty Watkin reported the most interesting findings:  “a soggy wallet with 13 rusting cents still in it, a sweater, 2 shirts, plus a shoe full of silt.  Almost makes a complete outfit.”

Richard Groover, Assistant Dean of Mathematics, Science and Engineering coordinated and led the cleanup effort.
