Here are some snapshots from this summer's Urban Adventures!
Urban Adventures students investigate waste in their community and what local businesses and organizations are doing to address it. At Kachel Motor Company, an auto shop, students get a close look at a machine that grinds down scrap metal, which will later be melted and recycled (lower left).
At Market Basket, Leo Lopez, manager and former Boys & Girls Club member gives students a special behind-the-scenes tour and explains how the store collects all organic waste to be picked up by a pig farm (lower right).
Staff from The Clean River Project take the kids out for a spin on the Merrimack River (hosted by Greater Lawrence Community Boating). The Clean River Project has found several cars and even an old safe! (there was no money inside, unfortunately).
