On Sat., April 28, at 9a.m., Ms. Pat Foy’s Earth Club and Environmental Systems students were out cleaning Walnut Creek. They met at the entrance of the creek and waited until their group showed up. Once the final member arrived, Ms. Foy distributed the trash bags and protective gloves to begin the process of cleaning up the creek.

Although there was not much trash to pick up in the first place, Ms. Foy said, “We picked up some of the trash. The place was clean to start with, but we still found lots of littler stuff. It was a beautiful day to be out walking.”

She also explained the importance of this event when she said, “It’s important to be outside because it helps you reconnect with nature and every little piece of trash that you pick up is one less piece of trash that ends up in the already polluted ocean.”

Ms. Foy was not the only adult member of the group; Mrs. Pam Heins, counselor, accompanied the students picking up trash. She volunteers frequently with Earth Club and makes an effort to clean up the environment.

Ms. Foy said, “Walnut Creek is part of the Schabarum equestrian trail. It leads from San Dimas Avenue off of the 57 freeway and it ends down by Leg Lake in Whittier down by the 605 freeway.”

Student volunteer Azad Nalbandian, senior, said, “Although I am here because I need the points, I also think it’s very important to clean up the environment.”
