Cleaning up for Earth Day in Groton

Groton — Syma Ebbin of Groton wanted to do something to mark Earth Day on Wednesday.

She and her husband, Micheal Kane, and their son, Elias Kane, cleaned up trash along Thomas Road in the Birch Plain Creek watershed area Wednesday.

Ebbin is an associate professor of the University of Connecticut Avery Point Agricultural and Resource Economics Department, a research coordinator with Connecticut Sea Grant and also the faculty adviser for the campus ECO Husky Club. She said the club had scheduled an Earth Day cleanup event but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

She decided to get out and clean up the area anyway with her family because she wanted "to remind myself it's Earth Day."
