OSWEGO, N.Y. — The Watershed Campus Cleanup welcomed volunteers to collect litter from various zones on campus throughout Earth Week.
Once collected the office of sustainability sorted through the waste and recycled items to measure the impact litter has on the environment.
“It’s important for people to understand where they live and the beautiful elements of the environment that’s around us. So I think by giving students opportunities to connect to nature and help to pick up. I think we are helping students to develop that live long connection with nature” Campus of Sustainability Manager, Katherine Spector said.
All events are safe for students to participate in face-to-face.
“We have seen a good turnout for our clean up so far. I think generally, everybody’s pretty eager to reconnect. I think we have done a really good job of designing events that are safe to participate in and also face-to-face” Campus of Sustainability Manager, Katherine Spector said.
The Office of Sustainability invites students to join them next Friday as they celebrate Arbor Day, by planting trees along the main entrance of SUNY Oswego’s campus.
