We went to the Rio Salado Audubon Center, a place in the middle of down town Phoenix that focuses in giving unban folks the ability to conserve the environment. This center is located in a wide area next to a road bridge that is heavily polluted, filled with a large variety of trash. We went there to clean a small portion located under the bridge. I joined the project to explore the down town section of phoenix because I haven’t been their much. Another reason I joined was to clean the environment because of its effects on animal life. This helped the community because it created a healthier and clean environment for the preserve center. An understanding of science allows us to understand how things work and behave, this is the reason why we are able to see how trash effects the environments. After cleaning the reserve I felt very good as I have helped the community.
