Environmental Science students Stephanie Ayres and Diamonique Clark, and Biology major Keeley Cook (all pictured above with Dr. Tucker), led a stream clean-up for Mustangs Make a Difference Day. Over 1000 trash items were removed from the stream and surrounding wildlife protection area between the Owings Mills and Owings Mills North campuses. The 1000+ items included 4 tires, a shopping cart, over 300 bottles, a toy truck, a can of construction adhesive, 100 plastic bags, a children’s jungle gym and many other things you wouldn’t expect to find in the middle of the woods. Photos of some of the weird and unusual things can be found in the album on our new Facebook page!

Overall, about 30 students from a wide range of majors and sports teams dedicated a few hours to help clean a small portion of our community.
