2011 Torch Classic - Volunteer Day

On June 22, 2011, Torch Classic volunteers employees from BP locations across North America came together to provide improvements at Jim Bowie Park in Houma and Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program at Grand Isle, Louisiana. The Jim Bowie park project included beautification tasks and a playground build. Volunteers helped to build picnic tables, BBQ grills, plant flowerbeds and restore a butterfly garden. At Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program, Torch Classic Volunteers planted live oaks and grasses along the beach, and constructed sand fences to help preserve Grand Isle State Park. Efforts of Torch Classic volunteers at Jim Bowie Park were mentioned in <i>Houma Today</i>.
