The 7th Annual Team Ecology field trips were a huge success again this year. The rain did not slow the students or volunteers down. District 56 opened up Bell Street Middle School for rain days and two days were hosted at the Joe Adair Education Center. The Chamber supports Team Ecology as the education arm of our Keep Laurens County Beautiful Initiative, where amazing volunteers work with all Laurens County 3rd graders, approximately 700 students annually. Curriculum based stations include landfill usage, recycling, and more. Each student is evaluated on the information learned as we aim to teach them the importance of reducing, reusing, recycling, and not littering.
