The Baltimore Inner Harbor is situated at the mouth of Jones Falls Watershed. Everyday, a huge quantity of trash accumulates in this city’s recreational attraction. Students will immerse themselves in protecting the watershed by collecting garbage in the harbor twice a year in Fall and Spring. The garbage collected will be sorted as recyclable and non-recyclable. The recyclable garbage will be brought to recycling centers, and the non-recyclable ones will be dumped accordingly at the right locations. They will also interview local residents and tourists about their source of livelihood and the type of garbage they produce most daily.
