Westminster’s Field Station has, since 2005, participated with the New Wilmington Kiwanis Club in recycling athletic shoes through Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program. Kiwanis Club members cut out all metal and package the shoes to be sent directly to Nike. On March 13, 483 shoes were kept out of landfills!

And, since 2005, 26,000 shoes have made their way through the Nature Center!
