Ecology Club making a difference

Sabina Ajjan, Gazebo Staff Writer
November 6, 2018

People can make a difference. That’s what members of the Ecology Club are learning. The Ecology Club has been around for many years. Mr. Brad Hutchinson, a past U.S. history teacher, was adviser of the club before Mrs. Theresa Ferrari. After Mrs. Ferrari, math teacher Mrs. Jessica Jaquith took over. Now, upper school biology teacher Mrs. Candace Bridges is the adviser. In October, club members went on a river cleanup at Amerson Water Park and managed to pick up pounds of trash with only 12 people. They went to Bowman Creek afterward and saw how much litter and pollution comes from the interstate. “They didn’t realize how throwing one Chick-fil-A cup out could accumulate if everybody does it, so they got to see how disgusting people really are,” Mrs. Bridges said. The club has many activities and goals for this year. Students hope to contact the Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful  about adopting Peake Road as a project and keeping it litter-free. They plan on going on hikes this month and in the winter, watching documentaries about nature. “And it is just a good experience to get outside,'' Mrs. Bridges said. "A lot of kids are so into their technology now, so they don’t realize that everything around them is so beautiful.'' Members of the Ecology Club at recent river clean-up.
