Byron Generating Station Earns Wildlife Certification

 

The national Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) has bestowed Byron Generating Station with Silver Certification status after a review of the facility’s environmental programs and processes. The certification is for two years and builds on certification from the WHC that began at Byron Station in 2011.

Byron Station’s chemistry and environmental employees, as well as its conservation club, contributed to the effort.

Chemistry employee Norma Gordon helped lead the certification effort, which involved a number of steps including:
- Ensuring the site’s bluebird house project, which was begun in 2009, was maintained
- Working on the Pollinator plantings at the station
- Uploading all the forms and pictures that document the work the station does to the WHC’s online platform

The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) helps make every act of conservation matter. The group celebrates and empowers all acts of conservation is at the core of what they do - whether it’s a simple pollinator garden or a complex wetlands restoration.

WHC conservation programs advance companies’ biodiversity, sustainability, employee engagement and community relations goals. Successful WHC conservation programs aligned with local, regional and national conservation priorities contribute to the collective positive outcome for the environment.
