Encino Energy partners with wildlife education center
EAST LIVERPOOL — Encino Energy has partnered with the all-volunteer Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center in Columbiana County to complete a pavilion project and support the center’s geology road show.
In Columbiana County, Encino was asked to provide funding from the Encino Community Partnership Program for the project, which added a new outdoor pavilion as well as picnic tables and benches to support educational workshops and progrmming.
“The Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center is now open, and we are excited about utilizing the new pavilion, “said Kathy Cattrell, treasurer of the centerenter. “We sincerely appreciate Encino’s support of this project and look forward to continuing to work on ways we can partner together.”
The pavilion will support programming and other activities. Encino partnered with the center’s volunteers and the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program to provide material to support ongoing programming to encourage kids and parents learn about rock and minerals.
Encino’s Community Partnership Program is designed to provide investment in long-term, sustainable projects in the areas in which the company has drilling and production operations with an emphasis on environment, health and safety, explained Jackie Stewart, Encino’s director of external affairs.
Columbiana, Jefferson and Carroll Counties are among Encino’s core assets where it is actively drilling, completing and producing wells.
“The protection and education of our environment, health and safety of the communities in which we live, and work is paramount to Encino’s core values and really is the heart of our community partnership program,” Stewart said. “Encino supported this project because the all-volunteer center connects the community with nature and educates people of all ages on wildlife and our natural resources, while encouraging environmental conservation. We encourage the public to come out and enjoy the new pavilion and one of the many great programs these volunteers offer throughout the year.”
