Video: UMD puts an effort to clean up the lakeshore, finding an alarming amount of plastic and styrofoam

Students from the UMD course Outdoor Skills 1 picked up trash at the beach by the UMD Boat Shed on Park Point Thursday afternoon. Sea Kayaking Coordinator, Pat Kohlin, said that the amount of plastic that ends up in our waters is alarming and that they are trying to keep it from getting in the lakes. The cleanup happens around the same time every year and student who are interested in helping out can contact RSOP.
