How Do I Participate in Conservation@Work?
Steps to Certification:
- If you are interested in making your business a Conservation@Work certified property, contact Sarah Michehl at The Land Conservancy for more information at 815-337-9502 or email her ([email protected]).
- Sarah will conduct an initial survey over the phone, based on the Conservation@Work Certification Criteria Checklist. This helps pre-determine qualification.
- Participants with strong qualifications are encouraged to set up a property visit. Those wanting information or advice on how they may get involved or improve their property will receive appropriate literature by mail.
- Qualified business owners will have the opportunity to get a sign signifying their participation in the program and environmentally friendly landscape. The program rate is $300 ($50 program rate and $250 tax-deductible donation), which includes a certification sign, the opportunity for employee “environmental lunch-and-learn” style presentations, and a one-year membership to The Land Conservancy of McHenry County.
Nice to meet you
