Teaming Up For Service Day October 2017
As part of their continuing efforts to create a movement of building community and helping others, the staff at Eagle Creek wrapped another successful Service Day on October 12, 2017. Partnering with California State Parks and working with rangers at South Ponto Beach and from California State Parks, the staff at Eagle Creek HQ were able to contribute in a meaningful way to preserve and protect their local South Ponto Beach, a place they have often hosted company-wide horseshoe tournaments and family beach days.
The Eagle Creek team helped out by digging holes and setting posts at South Ponto Beach, which they then roped off to protect the dunes and natural habitat. This proved to be a little tricky due to heavy sand and the abundance of beach rocks, but Creekers are problem solvers and so rose to the challenge and persevered, despite the hole-collapsing task. Other Creekers relentlessly weeded non-native and invasive iceplant from the dune areas. Also, once removing iceplant, birds return to the area to nest.
“The CA State Parks aims to preserve and protect its most valued natural and cultural resources,” said Kandace Iwasaki of CA State Parks. “With the help of Eagle Creek, we are now effectively protecting a natural habitat where birds can nest without any outside interference as well as get rid of invasive plants so other rare native plants can grow. Thank you Eagle Creek for all of your hard work and a job well done!”
“We absolutely love Service Days,” said Jessica Dodson, Brand Marketing Manager at Eagle Creek. “Our team looks forward to trading a day at the office for work gloves and fresh air. We understand the importance of protecting our local recreational places and are happy to get involved and give back. In fact, we hope to inspire others to do the same. Helping our community not only gives us a sense of pride and accomplishment, but we know that our work will be enjoyed by many locals and visitors for years to come. It’s an honor to be involved.”
Eagle Creek is a proud sponsor of the semi-annual Service Day and applauds the commitment and generosity of their employees.
