Addison students help clean Salt Creek

ADDISON – District 88 students and staff teamed up to help with the annual Interact Club Salt Creek Cleanup Project this month.

In 2008, the Interact Club and Rotary Club of Addison adopted a three-mile stretch of Salt Creek that goes through Addison. Every year for the past seven years, District 88 has committed to getting into canoes and cleaning garbage out of the creek and off the shore, a District 88 newsletter stated.

More than two dozen students participated in the cleanup May 17 after participating in a canoe safety training.

Along with cleaning the creek, the goal of the project is to allow students to respect and appreciate nature. Addison Trail social worker and Interact Club sponsor Jorge de Leon said in the newsletter that he's seen the effects of the cleanup as each year, the students find less garbage than the year before.

By the end of this year’s cleanup, participants had collected several large garbage bags of trash, children’s toys, plastic bottles and more, according to the newsletter.
