  • First Meeting: Wed, Feb 13, 12-1 pm in Sondheim 107

The students organize clean-ups to collect litter from green spaces on campus and remove invasive species that threaten the our environment. The org partners with Facilities Management to provide the tools and gloves, so all that is needed is that you bring yourself, a good set of shoes, and your passion for the environment. Last semester the group collected 1263 pounds of trash from our campus grounds. Join them in hitting their goal of collecting 1 Ton of trash this semester!

Campus clean-ups are held every Friday and all are welcome to join. Meet at 2:45 pm outside the Yum Shoppe and leave at 3pm to the clean up site.

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth at eeakes1@umbc.edu
