Nueces Delta Clean Up

By | News

On November 30, 2018, the Port Industries Technical Committee headed out to the Nueces Delta Preserve for our annual PICC Work Day! Dozens of PICC member volunteers took charge to trim brush and trees around the education area, Rincon Bayou and Nature trail. Volunteers also cleared an old dock, rerouted irrigation lines from rain water harvest systems to trees, installed solar powered irrigation pumps, constructed berms to slope slow water runoff, installed a new stump jump for the preschool visitors, and scattered seeds to establish new grass! Thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers for your generous efforts to keep our natural spaces thriving.
