The LeTort Regional Authority (LRA), a nonprofit municipal organization that preserves and protects the LeTort Spring Run and its watershed, as well as the LeTort Nature Trail, announced Friday that Union Quarries is a new sponsor of the Friends of the LeTort.
The company’s sponsorship will enable the LRA to continue improving the 2-mile-long nature trail and monitoring the water quality of the Pennsylvania Exceptional Value limestone stream. Union Quarries has been an in-kind donor of materials and manpower to maintain the trail since it was developed in 1974.
“We are tremendously grateful for the generous support of Union Quarries,” said Andrew Parker, LRA chair. “This will help us to provide Cumberland County families with more outdoor recreational opportunities on the LeTort Nature Trail and along the LeTort Spring Run.”
Union Quarries is located on Bonnybrook Road in South Middleton Township, adjacent to the nature trail and spring run.
“As a neighbor of these two important natural resources, Union Quarries is proud to protect them,” said Glenn Buffington, Union Quarries president. “They add so much to the quality of life in our community. Many of our employees enjoy fishing on the LeTort and walking on the trail. It’s vital to preserve them for future generations.”
Founded in 1967, Union Quarries provides limestone, ready-mix concrete, and bituminous concrete to commercial and residential customers. For more information, visit www.unionquarries.com
