UNCG IIDA Chapter Participates in Adopt-A-Stream Cleanup

April 14, 2014 § Leave a comment

On Saturday morning, several students volunteered in the City of Greensboro’s Adopt-A-Stream Program that helps to reduce the amount of waste littering our streams and endangering wildlife. The students collected several bags of trash from the department’s newly adopted stream in Peabody Park. This stream runs from the front of the high-rise dorms on campus and across Market Street. As a result of adopting the stream, a sign will be placed on Market Street reading UNCG Interior Architecture which signifies our commitment to organize a cleanup of the stream twice a year for at least 2 years. This was a great volunteer opportunity for students and is yet another way our department is committed to sustainability.
