Cherry Hill Park Goes Green

Cherry Hill Park is green. Yes, we have grass, trees, shrubs and flowers, but we are also green in environmental initiatives. Whether you believe in climate change or not, utilizing local energy is beneficial in many ways. Here are a few changes we’ve made in the past years:
Since 2010, our electricity has been generated at wind farms in our region. And not only do we use wind power, but we also use the sun. We have solar arrays to make electricity for our office, hot water for our Conference Center, which includes the laundry, 4 sets of bathrooms, and our café. We also use solar arrays to heat our pools and our hot tub.

Recycling is a big part of our operation. All guests need to do to participate is drop recyclable materials in the blue bins located at all trash stations. Thanks to our guests, we collected fifteen 50 gallon bags of recycling material every day last summer!

In 2010, Cherry Hill Park won the campground industry’s “PLAN-IT-GREEN” award for our efforts in environmentally sound practices. Whether it is energy efficient lighting or water reduction, many of these practices not only save resources, but they also save us money over time.

Recently, owner Mike Gurevich was interviewed by Evanne Schmarder regarding the Green practices at Cherry Hill Park. The video was made with campground operators in mind, but the applications apply everywhere. If you are interested, here is a link to that interview.
