Last month Newmont Mining Corporation spent the day at Windy Peak!

Last month Newmont engineers provided substantial site support through environmental stewardship projects with a day spent volunteering at Windy Peak Outdoor Lab. Participants completed erosion abatement near the brand new aquaponic greenhouse classroom, provided safety for the initiatives course by placing mulch in the designated learning and leadership areas and did fire mitigation work near the hydrosphere trail. The meaningful work that the Newmont team provided Outdoor Lab also had a WONDERFUL impact on students from Slater Elementary School and Glennon Heights Elementary School. Students saw community members participate in environmental stewardship service in their learning environment! It was an incredible day.
