Irvine, CA – April 27, 2022: For its annual Windes Gives Back Day, the firm supported the Aquarium of the Pacific by participating in its Los Cerritos Wetlands Stewardship Program. This program aims to restore 66 acres of wetlands owned by the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority.
Windes employees participated in restoration activities focusing on non-native weed removal and native plant conservation. The Los Cerritos Wetlands occupy habitat in both Los Angeles and Orange counties, in the cities of Long Beach and Seal Beach, and are also the northernmost home for Pacific green sea turtles.
Led by trained naturalists and equipped with gardening gloves and shovels, Windes employees helped remove 1,000 pounds of non-native black mustard and yellow clover and planted 130 Coastal Sage Scrub seedlings and bushes.
“Windes believes in making an impact on the community beyond the professional services we provide,” said Windes Managing Partner Jim Cordova. “Working together to support the ongoing restoration efforts of these unique wetlands has been a rewarding experience for our team. We are proud to contribute our time and resources to causes that enrich our community and the environment.”
Staying true to its core value of “Serve Our Communities,” Windes partners and professionals serve at various levels in more than 100 organizations locally and nationally. The Orange County Business Journal has also recognized the firm as a “Company that Cares” and one of the “Civic 50 Orange County,” an awards program showcasing superior corporate citizenship.
