Volunteer in your local community!
Students at MCHS (in Spanish and Science classes) will find a local clean up or environmental conservation effort for one hour.
They will need to provide evidence of their hour by getting a signature from the person in charge of the activity.
In addition, we ask our students to take a picture of their efforts and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #mchsclean&green
Here are some options for students:
Creek to Bay Packing Party 3/26-4/2
Calling all volunteers! I Love A Clean San Diego needs your help to pack up supplies for all 90 cleanup sites for our April 27 countywide event, Creek to Bay. We'll be hosting a week-long packing party at our office in Liberty Station. Sign up for full day or partial day shifts. Volunteer service forms available upon request!
Tsunami Sweepers Clean-up 3/26
ILACSD has been named the first responder in San Diego to assist in the cleanup of tsunami debris that is expected to wash up on California's shores in 2013. This is the second in a series of beach cleanups funded by the California Coastal Commission. Join us on Saturday, March 23 from 10AM-12PM at Torrey Pines State Beach for the cleanup!
Storm Drain Stenciling 3/26-4/2
The storm drain system is designed to prevent flooding by carrying rainwater from city streets to the ocean. Yetchemicals, trash, and oil that have been spilled between rains can also enter the storm drain system. From here they enter pipelines that are not connected to the sewer system, and the water from the storm drains eventually flows, untreated, into the ocean, causing large amounts of pollution.
By participating in the storm drain stenciling program, you are acting to educate your community about the harmful effects of improper waste disposal. By marking the drains with a pollution prevention message, we remind people that no oil, soap, or debris should go down the drains.
