Whitehall, Michigan 2010

As part of the Muskegon Conservation District’s Youth and Environment Stewardship (YES) program funded in part by Alcoa Foundation, student volunteers planted approximately 500 trees and shrubs at Pheasants Forever’s Native Grassland Restoration Project in April. The project is in its second of four phases to convert 172 hectares (425 acres) of unused land at the Muskegon County Wastewater System facility into habitat for birds and other wildlife.

In October, Alcoa Howmet Whitehall employees planted 20 apple trees in an area designated for an orchard on a six-hectare (14-acre) parcel of land in Whitehall Township that is being developed into Michigan Heritage Park. The planting was part of a larger Alcoa ACTION Day involving 125 employees.

Through these two activities and additional events throughout the year, the location donated or planted more than 1,000 trees in 2010.
