Students from Mr. Chris Greco’s advanced biology classes presented their interactive tri-folds about local waterways and the surrounding area on April 24 at Allegheny College,  along with projects from schools across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.

The day began in Shafer Auditorium where David Pallant discussed his journey to Vietnam and the Philippines to rid the creeks of garbage and sewage. Students then separated into two groups; some stayed in Shafer auditorium to listen to presentations while the others explored the tri-folds set up outside, and listened to students share their expertise on topics ranging from pollution in our water to watersheds and much more.

Then, the students separated to attend activities such as Gone Batty with Terry Lobdell and Map and Compass.

After a successful and informational day, the students went home with a participation certificate, knowledge about their area, and a new sense of respect for all that the Creek Connections workers do.

“It was fun watching Mr. Greco trying to figure it out (Map and Compass),” said junior Felisha Offi. For more information about Creek Connections, visit the Allegheny College web site.
