chevron celebrates earth day, supports environmental events
Chevron Pascagoula Refinery celebrated Earth Day with a series of events and outreach activities.
On April 13, nearly 200 students from Magnolia Middle School in Moss Point visited the Pascagoula River Audubon Center to participate in hands-on Earth Day activities, including water sampling and garden planting. Chevron sponsored the event, and refinery volunteers led some of the activities.
That evening, Chevron and Mississippi Power hosted nearly 100 environmental and community partners for an appreciation dinner. Corporate attorney and impassioned environmentalist Graham Wisner provided the keynote address, sharing his personal journey to protect hundreds of acres of the Pascagoula Swamp from development in the 1970s.
On April 22, Chevron volunteers helped collect waste at Jackson County’s annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection event in Gautier. Hundreds of vehicles lined up to responsibly dispose of paint, cleaning supplies, motor oil and other types of household waste.
Chevron also sponsored Earth Day events with the City of Gautier and Pascagoula River Audubon Center in Moss Point, and was a signature sponsor for the City of Pascagoula’s Paddlepalooza, Pascagoula Run and Free Flowin’ on the Riverfront events.
chevron partners with audubon to measure water quality
Chevron’s environmental department teamed up with the Pascagoula River Audubon Center to conduct water quality testing in Bayou Chicot in Pascagoula.
With the data, staff members at the Audubon Center will better understand changes made to the Pascagoula River system, the impact the local community has on the river system and how to conserve the existing habitats.

Nearly 30 volunteers from Chevron Pascagoula Refinery partnered with Mississippi Department of Marine Resources and Pascagoula River Audubon Center for the Mississippi Coastal Cleanup in November.
