The University of Tennessee at Martin student chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS) recently received a $1,000 grant from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to conduct a stream cleanup project in Martin. Joshua Tompkins, of Greenbrier, a UT?Martin TWS member, completed the grant application. The Wildlife Society conducted its first cleanup day, Oct. 25, cleaning the stream that flows through the campus and along the Brian Brown Memorial Greenway that is under construction. The group will sponsor another stream cleanup day in the spring. The Wildlife Society is also joining forces with the group, Recycles UTM!, to recycle the trash collected.
