Club: ECO Club at STEAM Legacy High School
My club is the ECO Club, and early in the morning we were all very excited to go out and collect the garbage that builds up on the beach. My club members were very motivated so right when we got to the beach everyone wanted to get started. After we had our first safety talk, we split up into our groups where we got our hands dirty to clean up the beach. After about 2 hours we came together to see our progress and all the trash we collected and compared data cards, and at the end we through the garbage and way in a trash can!
We found more straws then we though we would but all in all it was a great time. I believe we could get more of our members to attend next time, but it was a great experience. It made my club members feel like they were truly making a difference!
