October 15, 2011

Penn’s new class of student Eco-Reps partnered with the Schuylkill River Development Corporation (SRDC) and kicked off the new academic year by cleaning up the Schuylkill River Trail at Gray’s Ferry Crescent.  A group of over 80 Penn students helped plant trees, remove invasive species, and clear the trail, which just recently opened to the public.  The event was part of a new Eco-Reps service initiative that encourages students to connect with organizations in Philadelphia and help improve sustainability throughout the region.
