MAC Leads Environment Clean-upPosted on August 14, 2013
On Saturday, 10 August, the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) Green Team helped to keep Fort Snelling State Park beautiful by fanning out over the park and picking up trash. For two hours, about 30 MAC employees, including members of the MAC Noise Program Office, and their families collected a variety of items including cans and bottles, plastic wrappers, old flip-flops and steel pipes that were then disposed of properly. While collecting trash, several Green Team members enjoyed seeing deer, bald eagles and wild turkeys in their natural habitat. "Helping to maintain the environment in public areas adjacent to our airports is what this clean-up effort is all about," said Chad Leqve, MAC Director of Environment.
