On October 7, Dr. Karen Bushaw-Newton, biology professor at Annandale, and her students got dirty and wet to clean up Accotink Creek. The stream cleanup was sponsored by the Friends of Accotink Creek as part of the 2017 International Coastal Cleanup. Students from Bushaw-Newton’s BIO 102 course walked the stream and collected eight bags of trash filled with plastic bottles, cans, plastic bags as well as tires and other items. The Annandale Campus lies completely within the Accotink Creek watershed. It is one of the largest watersheds within Fairfax County.
