Deer Park Volunteers at Armand Bayou Nature Center

On Thursday, May 4 the Projects & Turnaround department at Shell Deer Park held its annual volunteer day at the Armand Bayou Nature Center (ABNC). Each year, a group of volunteers gets together for a day to help refurnish and bring the center’s Martyn Farm back to life. ABNC’s Stewardship Coordinator Mark Kramer shared a glowing review, commenting that the work done in during this year’s volunteering project at ABNC looked like three months’ worth of work. Some of the tasks the volunteers completed involved replacing hand-railing, painting and resurfacing pathways around the Hanson Farm House porch and railing.

“Being a welcome neighbor is part and parcel to our license to operate, which is also integral to our Flagship Vision,” said David Rennie, Projects and TA Manager at Shell Deer Park. “A big thank you to everyone who helped support and made this a complete success.”

Shell Deer Park is in its sixth year sponsoring the Martyn Farm at Armand Bayou Nature Center. To learn more about Armand Bayou Nature Center, visit http://www.abnc.org/.

About Shell Deer Park

Just before the Great Depression, Shell Oil Company became the first manufacturer to call Deer Park home in 1929. At that time, Deer Park had no other businesses or buildings in what is now a bustling community about 20 miles east of downtown Houston.
