100 Pieces of Glass in the Ground, 100 Pieces of Glass

Modified on: October 30, 2020

Actually, there’s much more than that! Glendale Shoals at Lawson’s Fork Creek is a beautiful, nature conservancy, but long ago it was once a neighborhood dump. And now, when it rains, glass is unearthed and lies scattered about. This glass is a hazard to the human and animal visitors on the trail and to the creatures in the water.

One of our UUCS Social Justice goals this year is to partner with the South Carolina Aquarium’s Citizen Science Program. This month we’ll help pick up glass and litter at Glendale Shoals.

Glass Pickup Drop-In: Saturday, October 17 drop by the Glendale Shoals picnic area from 10 – 3 and pick up 50 pieces of glass. Buckets, grabbers, and some gloves will be available. If you have gloves, please bring them and plan on wearing a mask. You’ll get to see this amazing natural wonder and help promote its beauty.

Directions to Glendale Shoals: Address: 351 Broadway St., Glendale, SC

Park at the Goodall Environmental Studies Center. Cross the newly restored iron bridge. Turn left and walk the short distance along the road to the picnic shelter on the left.

Glass into Art Workshop: Stacey Jackson has ideas for us to recycle the glass into art objects (gazing balls, stepping stones, etc.). We’ll hold a workshop in the Hatcher House parking lot on Saturday, November 7th from 9:30 – 12:30. Work stations will be distanced and materials will be provided to create several works of art for our church and other local garden sites. Please bring gloves to this event. Space will be limited.
