Boxley proudly supports numerous initiatives that educate communities about the importance of protecting the environment.
Explore the Earth
Introduces kids to the Earth's geologic wonders and highlights the importance of environmental protection and reclamation. Provides a great platform for teaching Earth Science in real-time as a quarry exposes a rare three-dimensional view of rock formations. When classes visit the quarry they can observe first hand geology, mining, and environmental stewardship. Many of the 5th grade SOL topics are covered during the tour.
Schools for Pools Earth
Earth promotes the importance of wetlands by using our Piney River Aggregate site as a field laboratory. The site is the home of “Mo” the mole headed salamander and the location of the first successful vernal pool relocation.
