Karner blue butterfly

We are actively restoring and preserving a suitable habitat for this endangered butterfly on the land we manage.

Osprey nests

Our crews work to protect these birds when they nest near electric poles.

Peregrine falcons

Our generating station nesting boxes provide a safe place for falcons to bear offspring.


Every April, employees at our Kilbourn Dam help the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources collect sturgeon to help with reproduction and restoration efforts.

Responsibility Report

As good corporate citizens, we take great pride in finding new ways to improve the environment we all live and work in. It’s equally important that we thoughtfully address the social needs of our communities. Building stronger communities requires creating a more diverse workforce. It also requires taking actions to build unity and trust. It’s why we are passionate about and support programs that focus on social justice, education and housing. We believe these actions help build equitable, respectful and resilient communities that are filled with opportunity. Collectively, these are key elements of our Corporate Responsibility Report.
