ODK Sigma Circle celebrated its Day of Service on Saturday, April 19th by cleaning up in the local community. ODK partnered with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission to help remove non-native invasive plant species from Cherry Hill Community Park. We also worked to help clear the park of trash.
This is the second year ODK has worked to clear invasive plant species from communities around the University of Maryland and is an important way to give back.
In the words of Vice President for ODK Sigma Circle Cara Hamel: “Yay to ODKers ODKaring about our local ODKommunity!”
