Employees at 3M Cottage Grove Center received international recognition for their contributions to wildlife habitat conservation at the Wildlife Habitat Council’s 20th annual symposium, “20/20 Vision: Celebrating the Past, Looking to the Future.”
3M demonstrates its commitment to environmental stewardship and increasing native biodiversity by achieving habitat certification at the Cottage Grove facility, according to the press release.
The Cottage Grove site, which comprises more than 1,700 acres, provides 200 acres of managed land for wildlife, creating green space between Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park to the north and the Mississippi River to the south.
The site is home to one of 36 known pairs of nesting peregrine falcons in Minnesota.
