STAMFORD, Conn. -- Mill River Park employees in Stamford and volunteers from Viacom combed the riverbanks of the Mill River recently to eradicate Japanese Knotweed, an invasive weed.
They walked over a mile along the river and cut down all the Knotweed they could find in the park.
“We all enjoyed working with the knowledgeable MRC team and we were pleased to support a local cause – particularly one that adds to the renaissance of the downtown Stamford area for the benefit of all of its inhabitants," said Lou Converse, Viacom captain.
"It was a great opportunity to connect with my colleagues, many of whom I would not have the opportunity to meet, all while accomplishing something worthwhile. I’m proud to work for a company that has a long history of supporting a wide range of pro-social activities globally. On May 20, my colleagues and I were participating in 'Viacommunity,' which is one of the ways the company encourages all of us to give back," he said.
