Since the devastating flood in September 2011, the Department of Environmental, Geographical and Geological Sciences and Department of Biological and Allied Health Sciences have fostered a relationship with Kocher Park to clean up and maintain the area.
In coordination with the Columbia County Conservation District, students and faculty volunteers routinely visit the park to pick up debris along the creek, prune vegetation and continue work on an ongoing creek restoration project to repair damage from the flood. The group, which was joined by the Honors Program this semester, completed its most recent park clean up earlier this month.
