Volunteers clean up Montana de Oro State Park for Earth Day

Posted: Updated:

More than 70 volunteers came out for Earth Day at Montana de Oro State Park on Saturday. It was part of Pacific Gas and Electric’s Month of Service, a month-long program that focuses on enhancing the community through multiple volunteer projects.

Volunteers from both PG&E and the general public spent the day sprucing up the state park by planting native plants and cleaning up the hiking and walking trails.

Ed Halpin, Senior Vice President, Power Generation & Chief Nuclear Officer at PG&E was there volunteering. He was glad to see so many people come out to support the community, which he says PG&E strongly encourages.

“At PG&E, we have a strong tradition of giving back and making a real difference in our local areas,” Halpin said. 

According to Halpin, last April, more than 2,500 PG&E employees, along with family and friends, volunteered a total of more than 11,000 hours throughout Northern and Central California for the company’s month of service. This year’s goal is to have 3,000 volunteers.
