All of PPL’s environmental preserves share a common goal: Demonstrate PPL Corporation’s commitment to communities and the environment through stewardship of natural resources, environmental education efforts and operation of quality recreation areas. Collectively, our preserves offer a tremendous opportunity to showcase PPL’s core value of corporate citizenship. Part of the responsibility PPL has in operating power plants is to be a good neighbor in the communities where they are located. Reputation has significant value to PPL and being a good corporate neighbor protects and enhances PPL’s reputation in these communities and beyond. With over 15,000 individuals attending programs at PPL Preserves and another 1 million plus visitors to our Preserves, our impact is significant. Surveys of program participants and teachers continually recognize PPL and preserve staff for their knowledge, creditability, and dedication to environmental resources and education.
