On 6 October, volunteer team Zernyshko of the Faculty of Geology of Voronezh State University gathered for a clean-up of the Usmanka river banks. This is an annual event aimed at raising awareness of the importance of environmental protection. Ten volunteers took part in the event, and they were able to clean the banks, filling 60 sacks with rubbish. There were some newcomers – first-year students of the Faculty of Geology.
It must be mentioned that the Zernyshko volunteer team was established at Voronezh State University in March 2014. Since then, they have taken part in a number of important campaigns and projects.
