Written by Alyssa Burley.

On April 15th and 26th, 2016, Project Cornerstone coordinated two field trips to Enniss Inc. for about 70 students and 12 teachers and parents, from Cajon Valley Middle School in El Cajon, CA.

Enniss Inc. is a unique construction company that has a variety of divisions that include sand and material sales, and construction material recycling.  Students toured the Lakeside facility where they learned about the quarry, processing and recycling plant.

The students broke into small groups and visited various stations.       

Students learn about the heavy equipment used at the facility.

They learned about asphalt and broke open geodes.

They blended their own amended soil and planted a flower, which they were able to take home.
