Practicum Office Hosts Lake Cleanup with Community Partner

In May 2019, the Practicum team hosted a Community Engagement Project with community partner A Greener Future and lead a group of FSSH students in a lakefront cleanup of Stone Street Park in the City of Oshawa. Community Engagement Projects are experiential learning opportunities that integrate service in the community with intentional learning activities.

Students were responsible for collecting and analyzing data from items found in order to identify waste trends and develop potential solutions. Prior to the cleanup, students completed a comprehensive online training program, providing the students with the opportunity to learn about data collection methods and analysis, as well as develop an understanding of why data collection is important.
