At Work For The Planet: Domtar, Student Conservation Association Join Forces To Enhance Andrew Jackson State Park

Stocks in this article: UFS

FORT MILL, SC, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Domtar Corporation (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) announced today that on October 20 th, more than 50 Fort-Mill-based employee volunteers and their families, along with local and international members of the Student Conservation Association (SCA), will converge at Andrew Jackson State Park for an intensive half-day of park restoration activities.  This will include constructing a trailhead kiosk, establishing authorized fishing areas around the park's lake, and installing steps on a steep clay bank. The project launches an international environmental partnership, in which Domtar will provide support for the SCA's urban initiatives designed to engage youth in local conservation projects in more than 20 major U.S. and Canadian cities.

Over the next twelve months, employee volunteers will be teaming with young SCA conservationists to protect natural and cultural landmarks near Domtar facilities across North America. As participants develop community gardens, build hiking trails, and restore parklands, they will gain important green job skills and experience while strengthening their neighborhood's natural environment.

"Domtar has a long tradition of being committed to enhancing the livelihoods of the communities in which we operate, such as the Carolinas. This hands-on project is an additional opportunity to express our 'Caring' value, to improve places where our employees work and live and to support SCA's projects," states John D. Williams, Domtar President and Chief Executive Officer.

History abounds at South Carolina's Andrew Jackson State Park, the boyhood home of America's seventh President. Defined trailheads and fishing areas will deter off-trail traffic that can damage natural habitats. The kiosk will allow the posting of helpful information for hikers, and the new steps will alleviate erosion on the lake's west side, while providing safer access for anglers.

" Andrew Jackson is a remarkable state park, offering something for everyone, from nature to history," notes SCA's President and CEO Dale Penny. "SCA is delighted to partner with Domtar in connecting young people to natural places like this and protecting them so they may be enjoyed for generations to come."

"By partnering with Domtar and the Student Conservation Association; not only are we are creating an exciting opportunity to improve Andrew Jackson State Park; we are educating the next generation about the value of public lands and volunteering," states Kirk Johnston, Park Manager of Andrew Jackson State Park.

The park improvement projects will begin at 8:30 a.m.
