Princeton employees tackle invasive species for Earth Day
More than 30 employees from the Princeton, New Jersey site commemorated Earth Day by clearing lumber and removing invasive species in the woods surrounding the Watershed Institute in Hopewell Township, New Jersey. Invasive species are a leading cause of native biodiversity loss.
Representatives from the Princeton Site Human Resources team organized the activity as a way to encourage more employees to volunteer their time and make a sustainable positive impact on the local community and environment. The team expects to organize similar events in the area in the near future.
The Watershed Institute is a New Jersey nonprofit organization devoted to promoting and protecting the watersheds of central New Jersey's Stony Brook and Millstone River, along with associated natural resources and beauty. The organization focuses its efforts on protecting and restoring the water and natural environment in Central New Jersey through conservation, advocacy, science, and education.
