AKRF, Inc. – Maryland Office is a Founding Businesses for the Bay Member. AKRF, Inc. is a leading environmental, planning and engineering consulting firm. Their integrated approach draws on a wide range of technical specialties to develop real-world solutions for complex and time-sensitive projects.
Their Businesses for the Bay team is actively involved in the community. They volunteer on the Patapsco Valley Heritage Area, removing invasive plant species, including English ivy. In 2016, they installed 6 amphibian coverboards on their office site in the floodplain, forested wetland area. The team is hoping to see some redback salamanders since they have been maintaining and monitoring the coverboards since installation!
In April 2017, the team participated in a few Project Clean Stream trash clean-ups in Howard County, MD.
The office just got a dishwasher and a new water filter, which helped them eliminate the use of disposable dishware in the office. Everyone on staff received a reusable water bottle, staff use non-disposable plates, cups, and silverware in the break room, and there are reusable cups available for visitors.
