Norfolk Southern’s Brosnan Forest, a LOLT protected property, is hosting the second Railroad Sustainability Symposium at their 14,000-acre conference center near Charleston, S.C. U.S. and international rail industry leaders and sustainability experts will learn about best practices in sustainability and environmental responsibility from speakers representing organizations and companies such as GreenOrder, UPS, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, C2Invest, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, TFC, Coca-Cola, BMW Manufacturing, and the co-sponsors, Norfolk Southern and GE Transportation. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the forest to learn more about the longleaf ecosystem. In 2008, Norfolk Southern donated a conservation easement to LOLT, permanently protecting more than 12,000 acres of the forest from development. The property is a safe harbor for numerous colonies of endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers among one of the nation’s largest remaining stands of longleaf pines.
