Environmental stewardship project presentations

Phil Clifford’s Biology 1040 class has put together environmental stewardship project presentations, which will be on display on Monday December 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the main hallway of the Warf building. The Vol State student Service Learning projects this year include:

-A sign for the community garden so everyone will know it is there (this is a continuation of a project they began in their leadership class.)

-Educating the public regarding safe disposal of old medications so they don’t contaminate our water supply (they are placing fliers in local doctor’s offices.)

-Giving away reusable shopping bags that were donated by Wal-Mart (this will be done during the presentation so, come get free bags!)

-A street cleanup on Lakeview road in Gallatin.

-A group went to local schools and taught children about recycling.

-A group is building safe nesting for birds – this will be placed here on campus.

-A group is promoting metal can recycling in their neighborhood.

-A group produced a video on composting with worms (vermiculture) that they will post on the Internet.

Everyone is invited to come take a look, and talk to the students about what they did this semester.
