Firestone Sponsors Riparian Repair and Tree Planting at Lynch Field

With a grant provided by the Bridgestone/Firestone Trust Fund, the first phase of stream bank stabilization was initiated along Jack’s Run at Lynch Field in Greensburg. On Saturday, November 16th, volunteers from Firestone and the Association planted a number of trees along the walking path and also reparied on of the jack dams. The dam had a number of large rocks thrown into the stream and volunteers moved them out of the flow restoring the dam's functon


Volunteers include (foreground) Firestone Warehouse Manager Tom Molina and grandson Taylor and (background) SCWA Board Member Dean Nelson and Firestone Plant Manager Michael McCrea plant trees along Jack’s Run on Saturday, November 16, 2013.


After all their hard work a free flowing stream
