CSU SURF Student Chapter - Field Trip to Rocky Mountain Arsenal
From Kevin McCoy:
On April 29, students from the SURF Student Chapter at Colorado State University (CSU) visited the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA) site. Roger Shakely of Shell Oil and Raquel Fuentes of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal public affairs office led a tour of the facility. We discussed the history of the RMA and surrounding lands, implementation of remedial strategies, and sustainable practices employed during the cleanup. The tour included discussion of the transformation from remediation site to wildlife refuge, and the efforts to restore the natural rolling hills landscape. We had a chance to view some of the wildlife including several deer, many birds, and the bison herd. The trip provided an entertaining and educational experience.
