Dozens of student volunteers clean up Hempstead Lake State Park

More than 50 college students spent their Sunday cleaning up Hempstead Lake State Park.

They joined the group Save the Earth from A to Z Sunday.

It's the third year the volunteers have come together to pick up trash and clean up the environment.

Their goal is to make the community aware of the effects littering has in the area.

The cleanup effort is part of the organization's Reduce Crime Together movement.
