Chroma is helping to promote environment-related education by holding environmentally-related events of interest to students, employees, partners and the community.
Herrick’s Cove consists of 395 acres of wetlands and floodplain forest where the Williams River meets the Connecticut River just north of Chroma Technology’s facility in Rockingham, Vermont.
Herrick’s Cove is popular among outdoor enthusiasts and birdwatchers as the cove and its marshes serve as a migration stop for more that 200 species of migrating birds and waterfowl, and are the permanent home for countless other wildlife. School groups, dogs and their people, and weekend picnickers also frequent the cove.
In 2007, Chroma decided that it was important to commit a portion of our time and resources to help keep Herrick’s Cove safe and clean. As a result, we now have a successful annual event that draws community members together. Here’s a short list of items hauled out of the water: worm containers, cans, plastic bottles, pieces of tarp, 2x4s, metal propane tanks, large truck tires, boots, styrofoam, metal buckets, and a large traffic cone.
