Operation: Wabashiki, 2014

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) student volunteers will put on their gloves once again this year in an effort to preserve the Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area. The fifth annual clean-up effort led by The Woods Sustainability Club will take place on Saturday, April 18, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., along US Highway 40 in West Terre Haute, Ind.

“Volunteering is a way to positively impact your community and all living creatures it is home to, both humans and other animals alike,” states SMWC Sustainability Club President, Adeline Dible, a senior psychology major from Indianapolis, Ind. “Operation: Wabashiki provides an opportunity for The Woods and the Terre Haute community to come together as one to make a positive environmental change, gain knowledge from our surrounding Wabashiki wetlands and have fun.”

The public is welcome to join in the efforts. Safety glasses, appropriate shoes and other protective ware are suggested. Coffee, snacks and clean-up material will be provided.

Volunteers will meet at Dewey Point in West Terre Haute on US Highway 40. For more information, email sustainability(at)smwc.edu.
