“It’s truly an honor for the Ogeechee River Keepers to recognize my students in their efforts to help keep our waterways clean. Any piece of trash, no matter how small, that we can remove from the creeks and rivers of Bulloch and surrounding counties is one less piece of trash to make it into the Atlantic Ocean or affect our wildlife,” said Casey Corbett, OTC’s Fish & Wildlife Management Instructor.

Over the course of the last year, the OTC Wildlife Club has helped with a bi-monthly clean-up of Little Lott’s Creek located near downtown Statesboro. In previous years they have also assisted with water testing and trash cleanup in the Canoochee River in Evans County.  

“My students, as well as the Ogeechee River Keepers, understand the importance of protecting our environment for future generations to enjoy. I am very proud to see the OTC Wildlife Club being honored by the Ogeechee River Keeper staff,” said Corbett.
