Join Nestlé and SCA on Thursday, August 10th to restore Kingman Island in Washington, DC!
Nestlé in the U.S. is hosting #NestleCares, a national day of volunteering across Nestlé’s 120 U.S. hometowns. SCA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor by facilitating opportunities for Nestlé in the U.S. employees, families, and friends to engage in team-based service projects in 9 different cities. These projects will focus on some of the most urgent conservation needs including pollinator habitat restoration and water conservation.
Kingman Island and Heritage Island are man-made islands built from material that was dredged from the Anacostia River in the early 20th century. They now provide important wetland habitat for many native species. Nestlé employees will join SCA volunteers to preserve this beloved green space for future generations to enjoy.
WHEN: Thursday, August 10th, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Registration & breakfast beginning at 9:30 am.
WHERE: Kingman Island, 575 Oklahoma Avenue NE, Washington, DC, 20002. Entrance to the park is located at the back of RFK Lot 6, approximately 0.1 miles south of Benning Road NE.
WHAT: Volunteers will help to restore Kingman Island wetlands along the Anacostia River to promote healthy habitat for native plant and animal species.
BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.
