Phi Theta Kappa and the Eco Club at Lone Star College-Tomball will team up once again for the semi-annual Wetlands Trail Clean-Up on Friday, April 1 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Twice a year, the two student groups pick up debris along the nature trail located on the north side of the campus. The nature trail leads to the Spring Creek wetlands. According to Brandon Lowery, biology professor and Eco Club sponsor, the students have good reason to take care of the nature trail.
“It’s difficult to find a real nature trail in the city,” Lowery said. “It’s one of the awesome resources we have here in Tomball, and it’s a very valuable resource we have on campus.”
This is the fifth year Phi Theta Kappa and the Eco Club sponsor this preservation project. To volunteer for the Wetlands Trail Clean-Up, call (281) 357-3743 or 357-3651 or e-mail Marvin.B.Lowery@LoneStar.edu.
