RIDGEFIELD, CT – On August 19th, 2016 Reynolds & Rowella donated a Day of Caring by employees and partners to make improvements at the 149-acre Woodcock Nature Center on Deer Run Road in Wilton, CT. As a source of environmental education where visitors can see protected wildlife and experience the natural surroundings from walking trails and boardwalks over abundant woods and wetlands, the Center hosts over three thousand young people a year through its summer camp programs, school field trips and on-site birthday parties. Open to the public every day from dawn to dusk, visitors to the Woodcock Nature Center come from the towns of Wilton, Ridgefield and Redding.
Volunteers from Reynolds & Rowella worked outdoors at the Woodcock Nature Center to paint the owl enclosure and put up new wire mesh, dig up vegetation and lay down weed block and gravel inside and in front of the large bird enclosure. Volunteers also cleaned windows and floors in the Nature Center building.
“The Reynolds and Rowella team did an incredible job in a very short period of time,” says Mike Rubbo, Woodcock Nature Center’s Executive Director. “Their work helped us freshen up our campus and visitors have already commented on how much nicer our bird enclosures look. Corporate volunteers do work we normally could not take on. We are very grateful for their support.”
Since its founding in 1985, Reynolds & Rowella’s mission has been, in part, to serve local communities through volunteering. Reynolds & Rowella began its Day of Caring in 2010 and has performed similar services on behalf of the Danbury Women’s Shelter, Amos House, WeCAHR (Western CT Association for Human Rights, Inc.), Tarrywile Park & Mansion, Family and Children’s Aid(FCA) in Danbury and Green Chimneys, a residential educational program for children and young adults in Brewster, NY.
The firm encourages all of its employees to volunteer in their own communities, an example set by the firm’s six partners. Reynolds & Rowella has offices in Ridgefield and New Canaan.
