Columbus, MS | March 16, 2013

Employees from AkzoNobel Pulp and Performance Chemicals recently volunteered with The Nature Conservancy in Mississippi to dig deep and help stream bank restoration along the Buttahatchie River. The five employees planted approximately 200 trees, which had been donated by Conservancy supporter Mossy Oak.

This volunteer project is part of an overall plan to restore the Buttahatchie River's stream banks, where flow has been altered due to years of sand and gravel mining in the area.

The Conservancy is grateful to AkzoNobel for their ongoing support of efforts to improve and protect areas for current and future generations.
