Sandy River Reservoir Cleanup

Fourteen students from Dr. Goodman’s Environmental Biology course, Circle K International club, and the International Club at HSC volunteered for a cleanup at Sandy River Reservoir despite the drizzly grey day on October 14.  This event was organized through Clean Virginia Waterways and the Ocean Conservancy.

We had 14 people work to collect 8 bags full of about 70 pounds of trash, including 400 cigarette butts!
