Along with the cigarette litter cleanup and community education that the interns are tasks with, Amanda dove deeper into the project explaining the other half of the Rumrill project ,’complete green streets’, which includes the implementation of ‘low-impact development’, widening of the sidewalks and bike lanes, and major aesthetic improvements.  Screen Shot 2017-11-01 at 11.46.07 AMThe ‘low-impact developments’ will filter water and aid in the capture and removal of litter.  After Amanda’s presentation the interns seemed much more aware and part-of the project.  A solid description of the worth of the project gave them the drive to take ownership.  We will continue our efforts on Rumrill in the weeks to come.
