Students from St. Christopher's School Clean Up Belle Isle in Richmond

On October 13, 2013, the Students for Environmental Awareness Club at St. Christopher's School in Richmond, Virginia led a cleanup of Bell Isle with eight students.

It was the first cleanup the club ran. Joseph Costello, co-head of the club reported that the project was a great "practice run for the rest of the year."
