ROP Students Gain Real Life Experience at Graniterock Quarry in Aromas


ROP at Graniterock - student works Bobcat

Recently students who are enrolled in the ROP Green Construction academy at Watsonville High School, traveled to the A. R. Wilson Quarry in Aromas. Students participated in a reclamation project at the quarry, getting hands-on experience with heavy machinery and learning safety procedures. Students also learned about Graniterock's many different reclamation projects all over the county, replanting indigenous plants.
