Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) HORT Club members, mostly horticulture and forestry students, traveled to Jesup Thursday, April 16, to revitalize the landscape in front of the Paul C. Scott Polytechnical Building.  Club members added a number of beautiful flowers and trees to the current landscape, giving it a fresh, spring look, just in time for Earth Day. According to CPTC Environmental Horticulture Instructor Mark Deal, a majority of the plants used in the beautification project were grown in the greenhouse on the Waycross campus by students in the environmental horticulture program.

On Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, the HORT Club will complete a project on the Waycross campus that began in 2014. Additional plants will be added to the north side of the Rodney E. Moore Building (Building 1400). Mr. Deal and Forest Technology Instructor Tommy Peagler assisted students with planning the projects and are also assisting implementation.

Earth Day, according to Wikipedia, is an annual event celebrated on April 22. On that date each year events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 and is now celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

“I want to thank the participating instructors and students for using their expertise and talents to improve the grounds,” said CPTC President Dr. Glenn Deibert. “The landscape is often the first impression someone has of the College, and a sustainable landscape offers positive environmental and health benefits to the entire College Community.”
