Vulcan Materials receives Conservation Education Award

Vulcan Materials Company has been awarded the Conservation Education Award at the Wildlife Habitat Council’s 26th Annual Symposium, Celebrating Corporate Conservation. 

Vulcan was recognized for its outstanding national legacy in the pursuit of excellence in wildlife habitat conservation education and outreach.

“It is a tremendous honor for our company, and for our employees, to be recognized for our commitment to environmental education and sustainability.,” said Tom Hill, president, Vulcan Materials Company.

“Many of our sites are located in and around areas with limited habitat for wildlife.  By preserving portions of our land and establishing designated habitat areas, we provide sanctuaries for many plant and animal species.”

The Conservation Education Award recognizes a corporation which has a history of striving for excellence in conservation education and outreach. The award honors an organization for its combined efforts in providing educational experiences and opportunities for personal contact with the natural world, benefiting both employees and the surrounding community. 

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.

Margaret O’Gorman, president, Wildlife Habitat Council, said, making the announcement, “We applaud Vulcan Materials Company for its outstanding commitment to establishing site-based education programs, linked soundly to habitat enhancement projects.:

“This award is not for one specific program at one specific site.  But 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,” she said.

Vulcan’s Liberty Quarry (South Carolina) was also a finalist for the Upland Wildlife Management Award, and was a Duck’s Unlimited 2014 Wings Over Wetlands finalist. 

Liberty High School, one of Vulcan’s 286 partners in education, won the Wildlife Habitat Council’s Community Partner of the Year Award for its work with Liberty Quarry.
