Goodman & Co. Employees Make An Impact on Earth Day

Photo by Bill Portlock Earth Day, in four different locations (Frederick, MD; Roanoke, VA; Richmond, VA; and Virginia Beach, VA) an army of CBF staff led restoration activities with the regional public accounting firm Goodman & Company. More than 400 Goodman folks participated at one of the locations. The Earth Day event was an important component of Goodman's three-year, $300,000 investment in CBF's Education Programs. 

This group of accountants wanted to do more that just write a check to support CBF--they wanted to get involved in our efforts to Save The Bay and that they did!

I have been told that this is the largest Earth Day activity CBF has ever organized in Virginia; I cannot speak for Maryland. Regardless, it was a HUGE effort that was a great success. Here are some of the highlights:
"•         1200 trees were planted (800 in MD, 400 in VA)
"•         2400 plugs of beach grass were planted in VA
"•         1 rain barrel was constructed
"•         1 butterfly garden was constructed
"•         4 dumpsters of trash were collected
"•         LOTS of non-native honey suckle was removed
"•         100 native honey suckle plants were planted
"•         1 snake was spotted!
"•         Hundreds of smile were seen
