Global and Community Health students volunteered during the annual Occoquan River Clean Up.
Thirteen students from Shannyn Snyder’s Health and Environment and Health and Literature courses joined the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District and Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition to clean up several sites along the Occoquan River. They cleaned up glass and litter and also found some unusual items, including coolers, clothing, and a plastic chair.
