Education, Support, Recognition
Conservation@Work, a regional program, educates, supports and recognize businesses and corporations who incorporate environmentally friendly practices on their business campus. The foundation of the program is to encourage installation of native plants into business campus landscaping creating friendly habitats for wildlife, capturing storm water using rain barrels or rain gardens (garden beds planted with native plants), and environmentally friendly campus care. In addition, businesses are encouraged to incorporate a conservation ethic, such as employee volunteer days, locally sourcing materials, recycling, and composting.
BACT Conservation@Work coordinator, Beth Adler, is available to speak to employees with a “Lunch and Learn” presentation discussing sustainable conservation practices. “Lunch and Learn” is a dynamic 30 minute presentation followed by a Q & A session. Rain barrels are available for sale to employees through the BACT website and volunteer work day team building opportunities are also available.
To schedule a presentation for your group contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847-387-3149.
BACT supports businesses interested in becoming a certified Conservation@Work campus with a visit to your campus for site-specific advice. The campus visit and certification campus sign for qualifying businesses is $300 for non-members and includes a one year membership to BACT.
