Our university library, thanks for our Green Library Group, just “adopted a stream” in the neighborhood next to campus. Five us the other day took time over lunch for our initial clean up. I enjoyed getting outside on a nice day, tripping around a stream with others from work, and just the good feeling of getting rid trash (so many plastic bags!!!) out of our stream. We collected over 8 bags of trash in an hour, including a bean bag chair, a plastic lawn chair, a soccer ball and hockey stick. What a great idea for a school group, a public library (maybe a teen group and/or staff?) and a college library (include student workers?). Read more about benefits to educators/students, guides and curriculum, how to get started, and general information on the Adopt-a-Stream page.
