Vulcan receives Wildlife Habitat Council award

By |  December 2, 2014

Vulcan Materials Co. was awarded the Conservation Education Award at the Wildlife Habitat Council‘s (WHC) 26th annual symposium.

According to a press release, the Conservation Education Award recognizes a corporation that has a history of striving for excellence in conservation education and outreach. Nominees for the Conservation Education Award are selected from member corporations that submit applications for Corporate Lands for Learning certification or re-certification in a given year.

“We applaud Vulcan Materials Co. for its outstanding commitment to establishing site-based education programs, linked soundly to habitat enhancement projects,” says Margaret O’Gorman, president of the Wildlife Habitat Council. “This award is not for one specific program at one specific site. Rather, it honors the entire company for its collective efforts in providing quality and accessible education experiences and opportunities in the communities where Vulcan operates throughout the country.”

In addition to receiving the Conservation Education Award at the Wildlife Habitat Council Symposium, Vulcan’s Liberty Quarry in South Carolina was a finalist for the Upland Wildlife Management Award. It was also a Duck’s Unlimited 2014 Wings Over Wetlands finalist.
