Students from various student organizations joined forces Nov. 10 for UHD's 10th biannual Ed's Bayou Clean Up, a university-wide effort to clean and maintain the area around campus and Buffalo Bayou.

This year's event, hosted by the Student Government Association, Environmental Club and Geology Club, saw a collection of approximately 2,089 pounds of trash and recyclables, beating the 2010 record of 1,400 pounds.

Event sponsors thank the 75 volunteers who participated, including Liza Alonzo, assistant dean of students, and Ed's Bayou Clean Up co-founder Michelle Falcon, associate director of learning success, and the generous supporters, including the UHD Sustainability Council, members of UHD Facilities Management, Spaghetti Warehouse, Niko Niko's and Zero's Sub Sandwiches.
