Hickory Hill Helpers: Organizing a Park Cleaup and Communicating Conservation

In the age of climate change, consciousness about consumption and efforts to conserve our local parks will be needed to minimize our impact and manage damage caused by climate change. To have a tangible impact on our local environment, we will host a cleanup at Hickory Hill Park by collaborating with the Friends of Hickory Hill organization. After the cleanup event, we will have a brief talk about conservation and consumption and have a guest speaker who is an expert on conservation, where we will also provide our audience with ways to make their habits and daily actions more sustainable. Our goals for this project are to have a sustainable impact on the community as well as those involved- attempting to steer others toward a more ethical lifestyle.
