Students will gather at the Trabant University Center early that morning for a bus trip to Delaware City, where they will work on a project at Fort DuPont. The site is operated by the State Department of Natural Resources.
This clean-up effort, which still can use additional volunteers willing to donate a few hours, is being coordinated by the officers of the senior class. "We have about 20 people and three organizations signed up so far," Alison Roath, senior class secretary, said. "We're doing pretty good, considering the event is still some time away."
Project coordinators have been promoting the event by advertising around campus and in The Review, and recruiting during student events, such as the New Student Activities Night.
Roath said that her group also will be handing out fliers in the Trabant University Center and conducting additional advertising efforts.
Buses will leave the Trabant University Center at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 25, and return to campus from Delaware City about 3:30 p.m.
Participants will receive a pair of University work gloves as they board the bus. ARA Dining Services will provide a free box lunch to each volunteer.
Roath said that her organization would like to have a post-cleanup event somewhere on Newark's Main Street, but this part of the day's events is still in the planning stage.
