Freshwater Land Trust Names McWane Corporate Partner for Conservation
October 19, 2015
We are proud to announce that the Freshwater Land Trust (FWLT) selected McWane as a 2015 Corporate Partner for Conservation. FWLT Board Chair Ann Florie presented the award to McWane President Ruffner Page at a Corporate Breakfast.
The Freshwater Land Trust’s Corporate Partners for Conservation program is a leadership opportunity for the Birmingham business community to recognize the value of land conservation. Each year, FWLT honors those corporations who have made contributions to preserving the places that matter throughout the previous year. The Freshwater Land Trust looks forward to coordinating this event each
year, as it offers the opportunity to convey our gratitude to our partners and reflect on our mission, while also allowing our key supporters the opportunity to talk about their involvement with the Freshwater land Trust and how land conservation matters to their business.
This year’s event was generously hosted by Bill Horton, Senior Executive Vice President and South Region President of Regions Bank, and featured keynote speaker Bruce Akin, CEO of B.A.S.S. Bruce spoke on the importance of conservation to B.A.S.S. and its business bottom line, emphasizing the
business’s partnership with FWLT and its mission to provide access to recreational activities such as fishing and hunting. Regions graciously offered its corporate dining space where FWLT’s guests enjoyed a catered breakfast and sunrise over Birmingham’s cityscape.
