ING Community Partners at Work!!
Thank you to ING Community Partners for all of their hard work yesterday at Stateline Woods Preserve. The weather was extremely foggy, but we didn't get wet and accomplished more than I could have imagined.
We planted 125 native trees and shrubs at Stateline Woods Preserve, cut invasive species, and cleared vines around many of the tree cages. The crew then headed over the New Leaf Eco Center where we planted 30 more native trees and shrubs in our Edible plants garden and along our new trail.
I think that all of our volunteers enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather and a day out of their office. The big topic of conversation was about the World Series Champs, the Boston Red Sox, and the surprising Philadelphia 76ers win over the Miami Heat--I mean Philly sports fans have to be excited about something....
We had one avid birder amongst the group who tried to teach me a few new bird songs (hopefully I will retain the knowledge) and counted 22 species of birds during the day.
A light sprinkling of rain started just as the day wrapped up.
Corporate Volunteer Days are a great way to build relationships within your company. Please contact Jessica Provinski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-347-0347 ext. 103 if you are interested in learning about the volunteer opportunities that we have available.
Thank you again to the ING employees that came out to help us accomplish some of our goals!! You are welcome to come back at any time!!
