Helping to maintain the Pittsburgh landscape, DLC and DQE Communications interns recently took to the city to volunteer their time. In partnership with Friends of the Riverfront, summer interns worked on two projects in an effort to revitalize and restore Pittsburgh’s natural beauty.

Reporting to two separate city locations, interns assisted Friends of the Riverfront with their mission to, “Build safe, clean, and accessible riverfront trails as part of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail system.”

On June 26, the first group of interns embarked on the 10th Street Bypass in downtown Pittsburgh where they helped to weed, mulch and pick up trash. The area is part of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s Redbud Project, an effort started in the fall of 2016 to plant 1,200 flowering redbud and other native trees on trails, hillsides and open spaces in downtown Pittsburgh in view of the city’s riverfronts.

A second team of interns volunteered at the Eliza Furnace Trail in South Oakland on June 28, where they helped to pick up trash, mulch newly planted trees and clear vegetation away from the trail, which is part of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail System, along the Monongahela River’s north bank.

The interns joined DLC in its ongoing volunteer efforts and commitment to being selfless in serving the Pittsburgh community.
