International Coastal Clean-up Day: Charlotte Beach

Taking advantage of the Ocean Conservancy‘s annual International Coastal Clean-up on September 19th, Peter Hentschke (Upper School Biology instructor) led an intrepid band of students to Charlotte Beach to rid it of waste and garbage. The group included Wenyi Zeng, Lillian Scalia, Adrian Bell, Lily Kegl, Jacob LaDue, Sam Reeder, Gunnar Hammonds, and Mia Trovato. Parent Eric Bell joined the group effort, as well. All in all, the Harley group bagged 117 pounds of garbage! Well done!
