CASE Dealer Robert Childs Inc. Donates Equipment for Key Restoration Projects in Cape Cod

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Robert Childs Inc. donated the use of five CASE machines to Team Rubicon to be used for land-clearing and grasslands restoration in the Coonamessett Reservation fields in Hatchville, Mass. The donated equipment—two excavators; a CX80C and CX130C, and three skid steers; an SV185, SR270 and SV300—were used to help clear the land of overgrown invasive brush that had overtaken the native sandplain grassland.

Restoring the Native Habitat
Located within the Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge, the land is managed as part of the refuge and in alignment with refuge goals by the nonprofit Falmouth Conservation Commission. The Coonamessett Inn operated on the land in the 1950s. Eventually, it was demolished, and the land has been managed for conservation. The native sandplain grasslands—home to a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife, as well as several endangered species—are critical to the Cape Cod ecosystem. But habitat has dwindled as the area has continued to develop.

CASE and Sonsray Machinery Assist Team Rubicon During National Day of Service

CASE Construction Equipment and Sonsray Machinery provided equipment and product training support for a Team Rubicon operation and land-clearing project at the “Family Camp at Yosemite”, run by the City of San Jose Parks and Recreation Department, in Groveland, California. Several days of equipment training throughout the week culminated in the Team Rubicon & Tough Mudder National Day of Service—a nationwide event bringing together volunteers from Team Rubicon, Tough Mudder and other organizations. A total of 60 volunteers from Team Rubicon participated in the event, ten of which are new operators participating in the heavy equipment training program.

Located just ten miles from the western gate of Yosemite National Park, the Family Camp at Yosemite—leased from the U.S. Forest Service and operated by the City of San Jose, California—sits on 47 acres of land in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The camp provides an all-inclusive outdoor experience for the families of San Jose and offers fishing, hiking, swimming and other outdoor activities in the serene backdrop of the Stanislaus National Forest.
