GREENSBORO, N.C. – A group of students from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro worked to keep the Piedmont clean on Saturday.
The group picked up trash at North Buffalo Creek as part of the “Great American Cleanup” in Greensboro.
Each spring, volunteers cleanup waterways in the Piedmont as a way to keep the environment nice and the water supply clean. People from local churches and businesses also participated.
"Faculty, staff and students live in this neighborhood," said UNCG senior Timothy Graham. "It feeds into the water shed so it is going to be our drinking water close to our campus. We want to keep our community as clean as possible."
