Ed's Bayou Clean Up a Great Success

By: Mary Ann Cozza

Students, faculty and staff gathered Saturday, Oct. 15, for Ed's Bayou Clean Up, a clean-up effort sponsored by the UHD Environmental Club and Student Government Association and named for our mascot, EduGator.

A group of 55 volunteers picked up about 403 pounds of trash from the bayou area, including 103 pounds of trash, 87 pounds of plastic, 92 pounds of glass, 57 pounds of metals and 64 pounds of miscellaneous items.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped clean one of downtown Houston's greatest natural resources.
