Students from The Summit participated in a Bayou Clean-Up last week as part of their Service Learning curriculum.
The program, under the direction of Jason Murray, encourages students to give back to the community in ways that are both educational and meaningful. Students participated in Prairie Restoration activities last fall at Armand Bayou Nature Center and continued their program by filling bags of washed-up trash collected while piloting canoes launched at Bay Area Park to Armand Bayou Nature Center's boathouse.
Despite gusting winds, the students worked together as a team, learned skills on the water and developed an awareness of the importance of the watershed.
Staff and volunteers from Armand Bayou Nature Center led the teams from canoes.
