The breakdown of data for the 8723 pieces of litter collected this Fall.

The numbers are in, and during the first semester students made a huge difference in their schools and communities. EarthTeam student interns took to the streets, their campuses, beaches, creeks and community events to collect data on litter and remove it from the watershed. At the end of the first semester just under 9,000 pieces of litter were removed as a direct effort of students. Students are now in the analysis and planning phase to address the fall litter findings. Stay tuned to see what change arises in 2016.
