Tarpon campus celebrates earth day

SPC Programs & Events

By Prof Kelli Stickrath

April 22nd marked the 45th Earth Day. Thirty students met on the multipurpose field on the Tarpon Springs campus to celebrate the annual Earth Day event. Through a fun morning, a lot of energy, and hard work, students picked up 15 bags of trash, removed Brazilian pepper trees, and pulled down vines that can smother native vegetation to clean up the natural sandhill ecosystem on campus. The event was hosted by Jennifer Fernandes and Kelli Stickrath, Assistant Biology Professors. Kelli Stickrath stated, “It gives the students a way to celebrate Earth Day by caring for the natural areas on their campus, enjoying being outside, and making new friends. I’m proud of these students and what they have accomplished today”.
