Dr Pepper Snapple "Get Outdoors Day" at San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge
Friday, October 5, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
Welcome! Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) has joined forces with the Student Conservation Association (SCA)--the nation's largest non-advocacy environmental organization dedicated to developing tomorrow's conservation leaders--to conduct employee conservation service projects throughout 2012. Together, we will restore parks, trails, and other natural resources in communities where DPS employees live and operate.
Come out and join your colleagues for a day of service at the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge. Volunteers will be building an observation deck at Scoby Lake for viewing wildlife as well as year-round and migratory birds; building a trailhead kiosk; and conducting prep work for building a new picnic area.
Training, tools, materials, insect repellant, beverages, healthy snacks and lunch will be provided. Volunteers should wear long sleeves, long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes; bring sunscreen and a hat. A volunteer shirt will be provided upon arrival the day of the event.
Sign up today! Friends and family are welcome.

Important: SCA and DPS are aware of the recent upsurge in West Nile virus cases in Texas. While Brazoria County has had no reported cases--and the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge has had no problems with mosquitos--we are taking precautions to minimize the risk of bites. Approved insect repellant will be available at the event site. We also urge volunteers to dress in long sleeves and long pants. And, for extra protection, we recommend spraying thin clothes with repellant.
Dr Pepper Snapple Group and the Student Conservation Association have teamed up to bring you a day of service.
