NHLA to participate in a Day of Service for the National Mall in D.C.
The National Hispanic Landscape Alliance (NHLA) will participate in a Day of Service initiative on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on September 12, 2014. The event, hosted by the Trust for the National Mall, will count on services offered by volunteer representatives from the NHLA, John Deere, PLANET, OPEI, the Irrigation Association, and other industry leaders, who will work on improving the space just north of the Lincoln Monument Reflecting Pool.
A total of 82 volunteers from across the country have signed up to participate in this year’s Day of Service at the National Mall, including RulyScapes Inc. and NHLA President, Raul Berrios, NHLA President Elect and VP of Operations at Total Tree Care, Juan Torres, NHLA Secretary-Treasurer and President of Alexandria Lawn Service, Pam Berrios, and NHLA Executive Director Ralph Egues.
“We look forward to being part of this industry wide effort, not only because it beautifies such an important site in our nation’s history, but also because it serves as a great opportunity to emphasize the important environmental and human health benefits of professionally maintained landscaping and green spaces,” said NHLA President Raul Berrios.
