Community Service

 Fall 2013 - Litter Pick Up - 9/11 National Day of Service    “Beautify the Campus Woodlot/Help Pick up Litter” is the EDP-sponsored community service project.  It is designed to pick up litter in the campus woods, known as Forever Wild, and the surrounding areas. Volunteers include not just EDP students but also faculty, staff, community members, and student groups such as women’s rugby players and Brother-to-Brother members.  All names are entered for a prize drawing for an FSA gifts card and are sent to Volunteer and Community Services to receive official credit. 

      Volunteers meet at the four-way intersection of Ring Road and Symphony Circle  Plastic gloves and garbage bags are provided.
