ATC employees celebrate Earth Day through service
We’re gearing up to celebrate Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22, with a variety of activities for our inaugural Earth Day of Caring. Employees in our Kingsford, Mich., office will assist the Dickinson Conservation District plant white pine seedlings and help prepare seedlings and fruit trees for sale in early May. The Baird Creek Foundation in Green Bay will benefit from our De Pere employees who will go on the prowl for invasive species along a popular parkway. Pewaukee employees will join thousands of other volunteers organized by Milwaukee Riverkeeper to remove trash and perform spring clean-up along rivers in the metro area. Getting dirty and having fun while restoring and maintaining the Aldo Leopold Nature Center’s prairie, marsh and woodlands will keep our Madison and Cottage Grove employees busy.
Our environmental commitment is woven into the fabric of ATC. We continually balance our responsibility to ensure electric reliability with environmental stewardship in our transmission line projects, community outreach and right-of-way maintenance activities.
You can read more about our stewardship connections in our 2014 Environmental Annual Report.
