    Green Deer

    “With great respect for our land and environment, the Green Deer ‘leave it better than you found it’ slogan is one that we can easily get behind. This year, 11 of our staff members participated in the Green Deer challenge by collecting 36 bags of trash along 19th Street and the walking trails surrounding our grounds.”
