Making a 'global' impact

Making a ‘global’ impact

More than 20 volunteers from Nielsen gathered June 11 at Schenck’s Island Park for the company’s local Global Impact Day. First Selectman Bill Brennan welcomed and thanked the group, most of whom were from Nielsen’s Wilton office. Nielsen Global Impact Day is held around the world wherever Nielsen has offices. The volunteers cut and stacked downed trees, cleared brush from stone walls, cut vines and removed garlic mustard. The day was hosted by the town and the Wilton Land Conservation Trust as part of its long-term meadow restoration project on the “island.”  
Land trust trustees Steve White and Bruce Beebe led the day’s activities   with Shilpa Sure of Nielsen’s Wilton office. The volunteers expressed interest in returning next year, and maybe returning soon for picnic lunches.
