United Forest Products for all the lumber they have donated
for bird boxes.
In recognition of the environmental partnerships and
sponsorships between NURRC, National United Resource Recovery
Corporation, Foster's Garden and Landscape Center, and the WLA
Upstate Chapter, Bunny and Nan Beeson came to Spartanburg to
participate in the December dedication and planting at the
preserve. From left to right in the photo above are Ed Elam, Land
Management Team Leader, Carlos and Bobby Gutierrez, President of
URRC, Jim Biggerstaff, Brandy Gutierrez, Recycle Fund Advisor
for NURRC, Mike Foster, our Horticulturist, owner of Foster's
Garden and Landscape Center on Reidville Road, and Lawson "Boo"
Hayes, Chief Financial Officer for NURRC.
The group planted
a specially selected drought and disease resistant maple tree.
In front of the group is the sign erected to commemorate this
momentous occasion. Over 90 trees and a wide variety of fruit
bearing shrubberies, nut trees, crepe myrtles, and flowering
plants will be added to Hughston's Resource Education Center to
rejuvenate and revitalize our woodland forest.
