Students learn in Clean Creek Campus

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 by Mark Richardson

Last week, fifth-graders from Hill Elementary marked the 10th anniversary of the Clean Creek Campus program by completing a service project to pick up litter and spread seed balls in Northwest Park. Afterward, Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo presented the students with a “Clean Creek Campus” banner for their school and thanked them for their stewardship and service to the community. For 10 years, Clean Creek Campus has provided an opportunity for schools to combine environmental learning with a community service project. The program is a partnership between Keep Austin Beautiful and the City of Austin’s Watershed Protection Department. Since 2005, Clean Creek Campus has visited 16,000 students in 204 schools and completed 260 projects. For more information, go here.
