ATC stays connected to the environment through Earth Days of Caring
American Transmission Co. employees teamed up to make a difference during ATC’s Earth Days of Caring. While ATC is committed to environmental leadership all year long, we honor Earth Day by going out in our communities to volunteer each spring in the days and weeks surrounding April 22.
This year, employees used innovation, collaboration and plain hard work to help local organizations meet their goals. Employees in ATC’s Madison-area offices helped at the University of Wisconsin-Extension Teaching Garden, which is a community educational resource. Volunteers prepared soil and tended to the garden. Employees at ATC’s Pewaukee office helped design and build a log mushroom rack for Riveredge Nature Center and helped haul logs up a hill that will be used to shade structure to protect native orchids. Pewaukee employees also helped in the gardens at Interfaith’s Washington Park Senior Center. Employees from ATC’s Kingsford office distributed seedlings at Dickinson Conservation District’s annual tree sale. Employees in De Pere helped with spring cleaning and laid down mulch at Bay Beach Wildlife sanctuary. Check out the photos below from the events to see ATC employees in action!
ATC is committed to environmental leadership and community service and support. ATC’s Green Team plans earth-friendly volunteer events for employees throughout the year.
In additional to environmental volunteerism, ATC also has an extensive environmental program aimed at protecting the environment while providing the essential service of operating and maintaining the electric grid to help keep the lights on. ATC uses new and innovative approaches to help pollinators, birds, wildlife and habitats in our rights-of-way. You can read about or environmental commitment in our new Environmental Annual Report.
