Farragut community comes together for Annual Earth Day Cleanup

Admiral Farragut Academy Community Service

Thank you to those that helped at our Annual Earth Day Cleanup at Clam Bayou and for science teacher Sari Deitche for organizing! In our three years of sponsoring the event, we had our biggest turnout yet.  Over 60 student and parent volunteers picked up trash, filling a 300-gallon can full of plastic, styrofoam, wood, glass and cigarette butts, among other debris. We also cleaned out dead and dying wood and palm tree fronds. And we planted over 200 mangrove seedlings. All this was completed in less than 2 hours!
