Earth Day Recap with [PHOTOS]

Posted by

This past Friday, a class of eager students from the sixth grade Ecology Club at Belmont Ridge Middle School came to NCC  to help clean up the creek. With rubber gloves, claws and trash bags, the students were equipped to pick up trash along the creek bed that leads to the Potomac River and eventually the Chesapeake Bay.


The students also came to assist in the release of an owl by Blue Ridge Wildlife Center. The owl was originally found injured in the vicinity and was rehabilitated and ready for release.

Kurt Krause, General Manager and Dave Lay, farmer with Linda’s Mercantile came together to teach about local produce and how businesses can source locally from farms like Linda’s Mercantile. Farmer Dave also demonstrated how his tractor runs on NCC’s used cooking oil.

You can see when Holly Morris, news anchor with FOX 5 becomes amazed that leftover canola oil from NCC helps run the tractors at Linda’s Farm and Mercantile which is then used to plow the fields.

Brickman landscaping was also on-site to plant a trees with other members of the Professional Landcare Network, who were celebrating PLANET’s National Day of Service with other lawn care and landscape professionals volunteering in communities across the nation. TurfMutt, PLANET’s real live mascot dog joined us as well.

Before the sun came out, it was a foggy morning; it reminded us of something out of a movie. Nature at its finest!

What ways did you celebrate Earth Day?
