Youths from both Succotz and Benque have taken up the mantle of cleaning their surrounding environments. By cleaning our river watersheds, we also ensure a cleaner water supply for all who live downriver.

The Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) Environmental Youth Group conducted a river and roadside clean up in Succotz on Saturday along with members of the Mormon Helping Hands Youth Group.  FCD provided the canoes and the village council also gave their support.

The youth groups collected a total of 87 bags of garbage from within the river as well as the roadside.

FCD invites everyone to assist in having a healthy Mopan River.  The local youths are now planning to do more cleanups of the rivers.
