Life Technologies volunteers "Wade for the Wetlands"

Last Wednesday, 28 volunteers from Life Technologies volunteered their time to clean-up Amazon Creek between Beltline and Terry. Three years ago, Life Technologies (formally Invitrogen) adopted a section of the creek through the Eugene Stream Team's adoption program.

Volunteers removed blackberries and scotch broom, and hauled an incredible amount of trash from the creek, in just four short hours. If you'd like to see just how much trash was removed, come to the Walkin' and Rollin' through the Wetlands event on May 30th, where the trailer will be parked for all to see.
