Greensboro College’s annual spring Stream Walk, an event intended both to clean a local stream and raise awareness about urban ecology, will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, April 11. Participants will meet at 2 p.m. in the parking lot behind Jones Library on campus.
Led by Cal Bond, professor of biology, participants will collect trash and garbage from College Branch, the creek that borders the eastern, or downtown, side of the Greensboro College campus. They also will take water samples and perform other tests to assess the health of the stream.
Participants wishing to help clear trash from the creek should wear pants and shoes (NOT open-toed sandals) that can get dirty, but participants do not have to walk in the creek to assist in the cleanup. Gloves and garbage bags are being provided by the city of Greensboro.
