In honor of Earth Day 2023, our teammates around the US found ways to connect, clean up and help others!
In New Jersey, members of the Eco Team headed back to the Alonzo F. Bonsal Wildlife Preserve to plant native species like Buttonbush, Silky Dogwood, Arrow Wood, and more. Thanks to the incredible team of nearly 30 volunteers from Phillip Jeffries, we planted more than 100 native plants, and turned out 18 bags of nasties on Saturday for the preserve.
