Great Water Month
Our largest annual internal volunteer event is Great Water Month, which brings together employees from across the country to help protect local water resources. This event, which is celebrated in September, encourages each and every employee to become a steward of water.
This year, employees from Milwaukee worked with the River Revitalization Foundation on Milwaukee's Lower East Side to plant, clear trails and remove invasive species from the waterfront. Learn more about other projects completed across the country.
