Wildlife council renews certification for Spring Hill GM plant

Print | Front Page | Email this story

SPRING HILL (AP) — The Wildlife Habitat Council is recognizing the General Motors plant in Tennessee for promoting biodiversity and working with students to promote conservation.

GM Spring Hill has organized water quality evaluations from stream samples taken by students from the Boys & Girls Club of Maury County. Plant employees and other volunteers help students collect and analyze the samples to evaluate the health of local streams.

The factory has also planted and maintained native grasses, created a nature trail and established a buffer near the banks of a creek that is susceptible to water quality problems due to residential and commercial growth in the area.

Plant manager Ken Knight says the habitat program "serves as an outdoor classroom to educate youth and the community on the importance of conservation."
