April 24, 2014 — Arlington, Va. — The Nature Generation (NatGen), an environmental nonprofit, is pleased to announce Luck Stone as a new Sustainable Partner. As a partner, Luck Stone provides cornerstone financial support that allows NatGen to make environmental stewardship education accessible to youth across the region.
Luck Stone generously supports NatGen environmental education programs and was a key participant in the creation of NatGen’s Education on Energy and the Environment (E3) classroom games, which are available for free to teachers throughout Virginia and across the nation. Luck Stone is also the primary supporter in building the next generation of E3 games, due to be released beginning this fall. Thanks to a $40,000 grant from Luck Stone, NatGen will be able to improve the technology of the games to make them accessible on-line to teachers and students and enhance the content to address current environmental topics, encourage critical thinking and inspire responsible environmental action.
“Working with inspiring educational organizations such as The Nature Generation enables Luck Stone to connect with the community in a meaningful way to generate conversations about environmental stewardship, sustainability, and having a positive effect on our neighbors. We remain focused on our mission to Ignite Human Potential, and our work with NatGen helps us to reach the students of Loudoun County and Virginia,” said Mark Williams, Environmental Manager at Luck Stone.
“Thanks to the generous support and long term vision of Luck Stone, even more educators and their students will have access to an engaging, fun way to learn about environmental stewardship through our E3 games,” said Peter Trick, The Nature Generation Chairman.
Luck Stone is a customer-inspired business that offers more than 30 different products such as crushed stone, sand and gravel, topsoil and ball field mixes to the road-building, commercial and residential construction industries. A privately-held company founded in 1923 in Richmond, Va., Luck Stone is one of the largest crushed stone providers and has more than 17 construction aggregate plants in Va. and N.C. and three distribution yards in Va.
