July 17, 2007: Tukwila, WA – Phone calls and e-mails may be returned a bit slower than usual this Thursday, July 19 as the employees at ExOfficio, a leading maker of adventure travel apparel, will be attending its first employee environmental volunteer day at Discovery Park in Seattle. With the exception of a skeleton customer service and retail crew, the ExOfficio headquarters, based here, will be closed for the day.

In the morning, all ExOfficio employees will pitch in with the park's forest restoration project, which includes the removal of invasive species. Employees will participate in a cleanup of park's two mile long beach in the afternoon.

“Discovery Park is a jewel that we have all taken pleasure in,” said Steve Bendzak, General Manager, ExOfficio. “It is very important to ExOfficio to protect the environments where we recreate, and this project is a great way for us as a team to give back to our community.”

The 534 acre Discovery Park is the largest city park in Seattle. The secluded site includes two miles of protected tidal beaches as well as open meadow lands, dramatic sea cliffs, forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets and streams. It provides an open space of quiet and tranquility away from the stress and activity of the city, a sanctuary for wildlife, as well as an outdoor classroom for people to learn about the natural world.
