Clemson Army ROTC Battalion Service Project

February 26, 2021

The Fightin’ Tiger Battalion will remove hazardous, toxic debris from over 30 miles of Lake Hartwell shoreline and roads surrounding the Clemson community. It is our goal to remove up to 10,000 gallons of harmful waste from the local environment in conjunction with Clemson University and local community organizations.

To provide some context, over the last four years Clemson Army ROTC has made a significant impact on the quality of Clemson’s beloved outdoors by covering 75 miles of the shorelines and roads in the community collecting and disposing of approximately 21,740 gallons of garbage.

This year our goal is to continue to build relationships with Clemson community businesses, clubs, churches, and organizations to create a sense of responsibility towards taking care of South Carolina’s outdoors. Our program will work with the community to conduct this large scale community clean up to create a lasting tradition of preserving the environment and continue to spread this mission across the Upstate.

This project is led by CDT. Keppler who is a junior Chemical Engineering Major from Chesapeake VA.
