Stream Walk on College Branch
April 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Students, faculty and staff are invited to the annual Spring Stream Walk, 2-4 p.m. Monday, April 29. Participants will gather trash from College Branch, the creek that borders the campus’s eastern (downtown) edge. Gather at the Market Street end of the parking lot behind the library. Participants should wear long pants and shoes (not open sandals) that can get wet and/or dirty. (You do NOT HAVE to get wet.)
Gloves and orange trash bags will be provided by the city of Greensboro’s Water Resources Department.
With the help of the city of Greensboro, the college adopted College Branch as “our” stream in 2003. As part of our adoption, we patrol the stream at least once a year, recording its overall condition and picking up as much trash as we can from the stream banks. (We filled 22 bags ent ofenlast year!)
This event is sponsored by the Department of Natural Sciences and Beta Beta Beta, the national honor society in biology.
