AccessFayetteville provides numerous ways to stay informed about your local government.
We enjoy helping the community in which we live and work. Take a look at some of the organizations and causes we support.
Children's House: Their mission is to provide a safe, secure place for children to overcome the devastating effects of abuse and neglect, regardless of social or economic background. In 2010, the staff of CH2M HILL raised $500 in donations to the Children's House from fundraising activities, which included our first Annual Motorcycle Poker Run, and individual contributions. To learn more about this organization visit their website: http://www.childrenshousenwa.org.

Sustainability is the idea that we must meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. At each facility we attempt to address our environmental responsibility by tracking and implementing ideas that will protect our natural resources. This includes living within our ecological limitations through activities such as reducing pollution and energy use, maintaining responsible consumption habits, and recycling.
Wildlife Habitat Improvement Projects: Our employees are committed to wildlife habitat improvement. In 2010, the staff of CH2M HILL worked with the City of Fayetteville to designate the Noland Xeriscape project and Wildlife Habitat Restoration areas as certified wildlife habitats through the National Wildlife Federation.
In addition, we manage the Woolsey Wet Prairie Sanctuary (wetlands) adjacent to the West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant. The goal of this project is to restore the native prairie ecosystem that once lived there. In 2011, the Woolsey Wet Prairie was also recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as a certified wildlife habitat.
EARTH DAY PARTICIPATION: We want to keep our community clean and beautiful. Each year CH2M HILL participates in a variety of Earth Day events, such as creek and roadside cleanups. We also aim to improve public awareness on enviromental issues and sustainability.
Our commitment to improving the environment doesn't end after Earth Day passes each year, however. Community cleanup efforts, public outreach, and nurturing the lands of NW Arkansas continues throughout the year. We believe that every day is Earth Day!
