Summary of project Approximately 40 students gathered to pick up trash and debris at a local beach. Students as well as other associations joined together, with each individual filling up at least one garbage bag with trash. The group gathered far more trash than expected, filling up the back of a school bus with refuse. After the clean-up sandwhiches, chips, cookies and sodas were provided, with several students enjoying the sun and ocean by snorkeling, swimming and playing frisbee for the rest of the afternoon.
