College volunteers pitch in for Habitat for Humanity

April 29, 2006

The College of Natural Resources was delighted to organize a recent volunteer effort with Habitat for Humanity East Bay on April 29. The building site was located in Livermore, with an area of about twelve homes, several of which were already completed and inhabited by families.

In general, the methods used for clean-up and construction were environmentally conscientious: recycling/re-using wood and framing scraps, conservation of water, etc. At the end of the day, the hard-working group was sweaty, tired, coated in dirt and paint, and overall very happy with the day’s efforts and accomplishments.

A mix of about 22 current students, staff, faculty, and alumni from CNR helped out at the Livermore site. Everyone participated with clean-up, painting, framing, and even using power tools.
