ECS also educates and involves the public in their community activities. The firm plans to continue designing posters and speaking at local conferences about environmental issues. In addition, ECS community projects are open to employees as well as clients (including NAIOP and Civic Works).  ECS community projects encourage employees to become actively engaged in environmental stewardship, a field they practice daily, while demonstrating their commitment to the communities where they live. Offices will invite various industry representatives from across the watershed to help plan and participate in different events that benefit the Bay. At least one of the office teams plans to involve students from a local school in a stream clean-up. Making the events fun and meaningful will help leave a positive, lasting impression on everyone involved.
