Volunteer Spotlight: Amy Young
This month, we'd like to recognize Amy Young for her efforts in organizing a community cleanup of Ocean Beach! Amy, a graduate student in the San Diego Zoo's Advanced Inquiry Program, was tasked with developing a mapping project of her community. She worked with the OB chapter of the Cleaner Streets Initiative along with Culture Brewing Company to organize a street sweep cleanup that involved volunteers picking up litter and mapping problem areas in an effort to gather data on the streets and alleys most impacted by litter. We applaud Amy for being a leader in her community!
