Corps of Engineers Cleans Up Fort DeRussy for National Public Lands Day 2015
Bobber the Water Safety Dog and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Park Ranger Angela Jones help instruct two children the proper way to wear a water safety vest during the Fort DeRussy beach and berm cleanup for National Public Lands Day. The Corps of Engineers’ Pacific Regional Visitor Center (RVC) coordinated the event which was supported by Corps employees, U.S. Army Transporters from the 545th Transportation Company, and Punahou Junior ROTC cadets. National Public Lands Day is the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the U.S. It began in 1994 and focuses on education and partnerships to care for the nation’s natural treasures.
