ECO Club Hosts Richland Creek Clean-up


Belmont’s Environment and Conservation (ECO) Club and Environmental Science program hosted a clean-up for their adopted section of Richland Creek on Saturday, Oct. 17. Adopted in the fall of 2013 through an environmental science course service learning project, the adoption requires at least one clean-up event and two trash removal events to be hosted each year.

Volunteers spent two hours picking up trash out of the creek. After the work was completed, ECO Club Co-President Lindsay Millward led a conversation about water pollution and the importance respecting our environment.
