    Volunteer of the Quarter Focuses on Environmental Sustainability Opportunities

    by: SOLitude Lake Management   |   Apr 30, 2014

    SLM_Volunteer_of_Q1_2014_J._Wesley_Allen_PR_c.jpgThrough its corporate volunteering program, The SOLution, SOLitude Lake Management named J. Wesley Allen, Environmental Scientist, Volunteer of the Quarter for First Quarter of 2014.

    Wesley has been instrumental in identifying several new environmentally focused volunteer opportunities, recruiting staff and their family members to join him, and participating in team volunteer events.

    In the first quarter, Wesley and SOLitude teammate, Greg Blackham, volunteered several times for the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife to remove exotic invasive species from Cedar Swamp in Smyrna, DE. The two also worked to protect the Delaware shorelines at the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean by volunteering in the annual beach grass planting event at the Delaware Seashore State Park. Wesley volunteered his services with the rest of SOLitude’s Delaware team at an annual Polar Plunge, put on by the Brandywine Valley Association, an environmental non-profit that offers educational programming as well as conservation and reclamation efforts of their local watersheds.

    Also on behalf of SOLitude and The SOLution, Wesley took the initiative to adopt a Delaware State Park trail. He and his SOLitude teammates now monitor and maintain a section of the trail.
