Giving Back to the Springfield Community

At Olsson, we care about and support the communities we serve. In fact, it’s a way of life throughout the firm.
Our employees collectively donate thousands of hours each year to strengthen our communities and to support educational and environmental initiatives.
Recently, nearly half of the employees in our Springfield, Missouri, office participated in the United Way Day of Caring. Starting at 7 a.m., our team worked hard to spruce up the grounds of the Discovery Center of Springfield, an interactive, hands-on science museum that inspires people to learn and gives them an appreciation for the world.
Our team, led by senior landscape architect Jane Earnhart, pulled weeds, freshened up landscapes with new mulch, trimmed shrubs and trees, planted new greenery throughout the grounds of the Discovery Center, and removed sediment and debris from a clogged grated storm drain. And we had fun doing it.
This is just one example of how Olsson employees come together for the greater good of our communities.
