  • Greening Our Operations: Clinton Clean Energy Center’s Right of Way Restoration/Pollination Projects involved the planting of native grasses in the 65-acre grassland area below the Ameren transmission lines as a habitat for pollinators native to Illinois.  This was a joint project with Ameren, Pheasants Forever of DeWitt County & Exelon Clinton Clean Energy Center personnel.   Additionally, 2 acres of public area in front of the Mascoutin State Park Office have been planted with a high yield pollinator mix seed.  This is all part of a 5-year station pollinator plan.   
  • Clinton Lake Management and Fish Stocking Program:  Clinton Clean Energy Center invests annually to restock Clinton Lake with Hybrid Striped bass, Walleye, Blue Catfish and crappie. The center maintains a working relationship with Illinois Department of Natural Resources to rear fish in a pond near the lake for release into Clinton Lake.  The partnership ensures the lake has a healthy fish population and thriving ecosystem. 
  • Gold Certification for Wildlife Habitat Council:  The National Wildlife Habitat Council awarded Clinton Clean Energy Center the Gold Level Certification. This certification honors the environmental stewardship of the center, recognizing the center's commendable wildlife habitat management and demonstrates its commitment and signifying leadership to environmental stewardship.
