Over 300 Volunteer on Earth Day!
Around 300 freshman from Richmond High School came to volunteer at Cope Environmental Center on Earth Day 2015! They worked very hard in some chilly temperatures and accomplished much! They planted several hundred trees, removed invasive plants and brush piles from across the property, mulched trails, and prepared the garden beds and the blueberry and pumpkin patches! The students were organized in 15 work groups and rotated across the campus. It was the largest volunteer day that Cope has ever hosted and everyone agreed that it was a success.
