Perryville Elementary School tours Belvedere Sand & Gravel Plant

York Building Products recently donated 3 tons of 2-4” cobbles to Perryville Elementary School. Third grade students painted several hundred and used both the painted and unpainted cobbles to create 750’ of border around the school’s new gardens. The students were also able to tour the company’s Belvedere sand & gravel plant in Port Deposit, Maryland, where they learned about how the rock deposits were formed millions of years ago, the plant’s production process and the recycling of its wash water. The tour ended with driving the buses onto the plant’s truck scale and having the students guess how much they weighed.
