Environmental commitment

Since 1992, Plant Farley has been recognized as a certified wildlife habitat by the Wildlife Habitat Council. The council is a non-profit international organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing wildlife habitats. Almost half of Farley's 1,850 acres are wooded, with the remainder consisting of meadows, wetlands, ponds and a 95-acre lake.

Shortly after Plant Farley was built, a detailed land management plan was developed. The plan outlines strategies for enhancing the habitat for waterfowl, songbirds, deer and plant life. Mowing, tree planting and nest box placement are carefully monitored. Plant Farley's bluebird nesting program is considered a very successful wildlife program. More than 75 bluebird boxes have been installed at the site. The nesting program has expanded into the local community. The plant has partnered with local school children who help monitor the boxes and record results.
