Excellent wildlife habitat, miles of networked trails, and community education programs are part of Chemours’ commitment to the community
Submitted by The Chemours Company
Chemours’ Washington Works manufacturing site located in Wood County, West Virginia has been recognized for environmental excellence by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC). The site was designated as Certified Gold, signifying leadership among more than 600 WHC Conservation Certification programs.
“Chemours is dedicated to investing in the communities where we operate and leading the way on social responsibility for our industry. Our wildlife habitat education and outdoor programs are among the many ways we provide value and resources to reinforce science education in our community and I join our wildlife habitat volunteers in the excitement of achieving Gold Certification,” said Chemours Washington Works Plant Manager Nicole Newell.
The Washington Works integrated approach encompasses the creation and maintenance of a variety of wildlife habitats on the manufacturing site and land adjacent to the site. The program serves a wide variety of flora and fauna, 2.72 miles of networked nature trails, and learning programs geared to all ages. Established in 1992, the employee and retiree volunteers host school and Boy Scouts of America groups each year for guided education and work projects.
“The Washington Works site is recognized as meeting the strict requirements of WHC Conservation Certification,” said Margaret O’Gorman, President, Wildlife Habitat Council. “Companies achieving this certification are environmental leaders, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and the communities that surround them.”
The trailhead is located about a half-mile west of the intersection of Route 50 and Route 892 and is open during daylight hours all year for individuals, families, and groups to enjoy.
