Century Volunteers at Mt. Cuba Center

June 2019 | Century

Century’s Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program, which encourages our employees to take time to engage more fully with the communities in which we live and work, provided several of our Dover employees with the opportunity to assist with the conservation efforts of the Mt. Cuba Center in Hockessin, Delaware on May 23.

Mt. Cuba is a non-profit botanical garden that highlights wildflowers and plants native to the Piedmont area. Sustainability and an emphasis on education and community outreach are at the core of its mission. Guided tours, special programs, and classes in horticulture, wellness, art, and conservation all encourage respectful, knowledgeable practices that peacefully coexist with the region’s ecosystem.

During their day at Mt. Cuba, Century employees Frank Miller, Alex Schmidt, Elizabeth Chandler, Mark Strickland, Dana Dunphy, Emily Price, Dom Schiavoni, and Ella Kukieva learned how to identify and measure trees, allowing researchers to accurately determine the optimal species mix and plant density when replanting forests.
