We maintain 1,289 acres of certified wildlife habitats

          

MPC owns and maintains 20 wildlife habitats certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), with a total of 1,289 acres of land. These sites are certified as either Wildlife at Work or Corporate Lands for Learning sites, and in some cases both. The WHC’s Wildlife at Work program provides a structure for cooperative efforts between management, employees and community members to create, conserve and restore wildlife habitats on corporate lands. Corporate Lands for Learning is a certification program that gives us a framework for opening our habitats to members of the community for educational purposes.
