Each year on April 22, people the world over organize for environmental awareness under the flag of Earth Day. IC System is stepping up to our part as well. On April 22, employees in the home office in Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, will plant seeds in the acres of adjoining wetlands and grassy fields.
Each armed with a bag of wildflower and milkweed seeds, our employees will use the throw-and-grow method to make our property a small, but thriving ecosystem. With time to grow and a little luck, the wildflowers and milkweeds will bloom, attract pollinators, and make our field look beautiful too.
In support of this event, IC System has partnered with the Vadnais Lake Area Water Management Organization (VLAWMO), which helps protect and enhance the watersheds of northern Ramsey County and some sections of Anoka County. The VLAWMO has provided IC System with a number of items to support our Earth Day event and create awareness about the significance of healthy watersheds.
The VLAWMO has donated giveaways to event participants including a rainbarrel, water bottles, tote bags, pens, and caps. The VLAWMO has also provided important handouts on native plants, raingardens, pollinators, local green events/workshops, and their watersheds grant programs.
IC System’s La Crosse, Wisconsin branch office will also celebrate Earth Day. Though located in a suburban retail setting, La Crosse employees have been encouraged to show their Earth Day enthusiasm within the office. Employees might choose to greenify their workspace, organize an office charity in support of an environmental cause, or propose a solution to reduce waste and paper within the office. Three employees with the best idea, charitable effort, or greenest workspace will receive a gift card to a local garden center.
By celebrating Earth Day, IC System hopes to remind the community that our planet is our one and only home. Earth Day serves as a reminder that our planet’s health requires more than just a single day to care for it, make it beautiful, and nurture it. IC System is proud to be a part of this effort, which will become unmistakable by mid-summer when the wildflowers and milkweeds have grown into healthy plants.
