In recognition of National Rivers Month, Iowa State University's Live Green! Initiative and Keep Iowa State Beautiful are teaming up with ISU's Environmental Health and Safety to give College Creek a good cleaning.
Volunteers will meet on Saturday, June 23rd to help clean College Creek, a stream that passes through Iowa State's campus. Small groups will walk through sections of the creek and along the creek bank looking for debris and other trash.
The creek clean up will be from 11:00a.m.-2:00p.m.. No time limit is required, any help is appreciated.
Iowa State's sustainability efforts include keeping the land and water in the campus and Ames communities clean and healthy. This endeavor targets local sustainability and supports all the cleanups of U.S. waterways during National Rivers Month.
Live Green! and Keep Iowa State Beautiful are Iowa State University initiatives. These initiatives are collaborations between faculty, staff, students and the Ames community to increase awareness and involvement toward eliminating litter and living greener and more sustainably. Environmental Health and Safety is a university department. Health & Safety's role is to protect the health and well-being of employees and the public from chemical, microbiological and physical health hazards present at, or emanating from, the workplace.
