Tarpon Environmental Club Cleans Up Plant

SPC Programs & Events

By Prof. Kelli Stickrath

On Aug. 28, the Tarpon Springs Environmental Club students participated in a cleanup at the Reverse Osmosis plant as a community project in partnership with the City of Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department. Students in attendance were Mark Williams, Brad Pasinski, Dan Stevens, Pavel Klimchuk, Amy Sperry, Leilanie Ortiz, and Travis Scarboro. Tracy Tippin, Environmental Club Co-Advisor, was there as well. Students worked hard, took a tour of the plant, and then enjoyed a well deserved lunch at Mellow Mushroom afterwards.

Natalie Lamb of the City of Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department expressed her appreciation by saying, “Thank you so much, SPC Environmental Club Tarpon Springs, for all of your hard work during every project with the City of Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department! The City of Clearwater maintains more than 100 parks and 16 miles of trails to bike, jog, or stroll. Dozens of special events, including concerts, festivals, sporting and charity events are held each year in Clearwater. Miles of beaches and shorelines are kept clean and beautiful for both residents and visitors to enjoy year round. These amenities are possible through direct support of amazing volunteers like you! Over 4,000 volunteers contribute 45,000 hours through the Parks and Recreation Department each year, which is valued at over one million dollars!”
