Open space restoration will continue to be supported by attorney Patricia Tauchert as she joins The Conservation Foundation’s board of trustees.
Tauchert, a partner with Pluymert, MacDonald, Hargrove & Lee, Ltd., in Hoffman Estates, has been interested in native plants and habitat restoration projects and even raises Monarch butterflies on her back porch during the summer.
“I love the work The Conservation Foundation does,” Tauchert said. “The restoration of native plants is extremely important and I think we need to use them everywhere both to replace what we’ve lost and because they’re the most beautiful.”
She lives in Dundee and is a 1979 graduate of the Northwestern University School of Law. Tauchert has enjoyed a long career as a corporate attorney, including as in-house counsel with the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago, Sears and Square D Company/Schneider Electric. She has been involved in a number of commercial real estate transactions, including environmental remediation.
She’s a published author and has testified before state legislative committees on pending legislation and regulations on the sale of goods.
