U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District Environmental Branch colleagues Vanessa Pepi, Erika McCormick and Nicole Silva present Earth Day topics to Wiesbaden Middle School students April 22 in Wiesbaden, Germany. The three female environmentalists - a biologist, chemist and project manager - spoke to sixth through eighth grade students about green energy, recycling recovered fuel, deforestation, the Endangered Species Act and science-based career fields. In Dave Lawrence's classroom, McCormick assisted two volunteers interested in trying on personal protective equipment worn by environmentalists in the field. The entire class, including the teacher and the volunteers, got a chuckle out of the PPE, but realized the importance of wearing it around hazardous materials.
