Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy volunteers and experts from the Center for Excellence recently participated in the New Mexico Bureau of Land Management’s National Public Lands Day events.
National Public Lands Day is an annual celebration that unites volunteers and organizations in the preservation and improvement of the nation’s public lands.
Khush Ghadiali, community relations specialist, at Devon Energy, expressed the company’s commitment to strengthening conservation efforts.
“Devon has a history of joining in efforts to better our communities and help make a difference,” said Ghadiali. “This is just another example of that commitment. We are grateful to all the amazing partners who made this possible.”
Nearly three dozen volunteers installed new grills at recreation sites, built stone barriers to control erosion and assisted in general cleanup efforts at the Six Mile Dam and throughout the Hackberry-Tri-System area.
Emily Werth, executive director with CHEMM, acknowledged Devon’s significant contributions.
“Devon Energy’s help at Six Mile Dam has been invaluable,” said Werth. “The Six Mile Dam is critical for preserving local habitats and maintaining water quality and supporting recreational activities. Their dedication to environmental efforts in general and erosion control is an example of their commitment to the long-term health of our public lands.”
