Constellation, an Exelon company, is strongly committed to giving back to the community. In 2014, the Constellation-Lowell office decided to partner with a local non-profit as part of this effort. Through careful research, we identified the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust (LP&CT) as a likely deserving organization. Our initial activities began with a Concord River Greenway clean-up on a section of the river within walking distance of our office. We now treat this section of land as “ours” and steward it carefully. Since 2014, we have completed 2 Greenway clean-ups, and one “make-over” day at Lowell’s Spalding House, an LP&CT property requiring garden clean-up and window-washing. Currently, Constellation plans to build a viewing platform adjacent to a vernal pool at LP&CT’s West Meadow conservation land. Volunteers will assist with everything from drawing up plans to building the platform on site. LP&CT’s breadth of positive impact upon Lowell, with a small and dedicated staff, continues to impress both experienced and new volunteers at their well-organized events.
