MAKING A LOCAL IMPACT
In its 19th year, the Annual Ludington Lake Jump was another successful event, raising a total of $85,390 amidst the community. Since inception, the event has raised over $500,000 for local charities. This year, Western’s CEO, John Wilson, and a large group of WLS employees braved the frigid waters of Lake Michigan!! WLS team members also raised an impressive grand total of $12,000! For a worthy cause of course – funds are going to Mason County’s Lakeshore Food Club, residing in our corporate office’s local neighborhood. The Lakeshore Food Club is a valuable resource for local families that are 200% or below the federal poverty guideline. Check out this article for additional details.
Supporting the Geospatial Community
As a company that appreciates and embraces the power of GIS in its day to day operations, Western Land Services is pleased to be sponsoring EnerGIS, a conference dedicated to fueling growth and collaboration of GIS within the Energy Industry. Taking place in Canonsburg, PA this week, April 26th & 27th, EnerGIS is in its sixth year. The agenda looks promising! And, what better way to wrap up the day, than with Social hour, sponsored by Western Land. While on-line registration is closed, there may still be space for walk-ins! A big thank you to the EnerGIS committee and GITA for putting on the event. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Compassion Shines Through at Western Land
Giving back to the community is a core value at Western Land Services. We work hard for our clients and we work hard for our communities. This Spring, WLS has set its sights on donating 500 pints of blood and blood derivatives to the American Red Cross – to be achieved through a combination of WLS employees and staff recruits. Every pint of blood has the ability to save 3 lives!! It is our mission to rally the troops and lay the foundation for not only this immediate goal, but for years to come, the importance of this organization and blood donations. WLS is sponsoring its own blood drive in Ludington, MI on May 22nd and in Canonsburg, PA on May 31st. We are actively scheduling drives in other major locations. WLS employees are also donating Red Cross disaster relief items: toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, hairbrushes, and washcloths. Over the last five weeks, we have collected nearly 7,000 relief items!!! Yes, you read that correctly – from a company with less than 400 employees.
Join us in our pledge to good deeds, to giving back on a local and national level, and to a better future. You can make an impact.
Establishing an Oklahoma Presence Through a Meaningful Investment
Western Land Services is pleased to announce it has recently acquired Barton Land Consultants, of Duncan, Oklahoma. The transaction closed on March 22nd, 2018. This comes a year after WLS positioned itself as an Employee Owned Company, and represents a bold new step for the future and growth of WLS.
BLC was formed in 2006 by owner Brent Barton. Now a 60+ person, full service operation, Barton has built a solid reputation for providing quality and timely land services to its clients in Oklahoma and beyond.
WLS is thrilled to welcome Brent and the BLC family to the fold. With evident synergies in company cultures, values, and service portfolios, WLS is eager to expand its footprint in Oklahoma and to become more involved in one of the most prolific oil and gas areas in the nation. In conjunction with this acquisition, WLS is also in the midst of securing an Oklahoma City office to strengthen its commitment to this region. WLS and BLC share a wealth of knowledge and experience, along with a commitment to building lasting client relationships by delivering best in class land services. WLS looks forward to sharing those benefits with clients for years to come.

Western Land Mobilizes & Executes Under Pressure
Some folks were gearing up for the holidays. The Western Land team was focused on getting it done for a client yet again. Under short notice, but for a very important cause, Western Land was tasked with a hefty request the week of Christmas. Determined, Western rallied the troops and completed a mass mail-out to a whopping 5,500 landowners on a client’s behalf.
Responsive, dedicated, and resourceful, Western Land is your solution for all things land related. Contact us today to learn more about our mass lease signing or mail-out capabilities. You can count on us.
