I go this email from – and thought I would pass it on! This is exciting stuff- Check it out!
…. My name is Julie and I am contacting you today on behalf of the National Audubon Society and a remarkable project called TogetherGreen. I was wondering if you would be at all interested in working together to inform the Green Eco Service readers about this project, especially the grant awarded to LA!
You are probably wondering what exactly TogetherGreen is. It’s all about helping people get involved in creating a brighter, healthier future. This Audubon program funded by Toyota aims to provide inspiration, leadership and opportunities that inspire people everywhere to take action at home, in their communities and beyond to improve the health of our environment.
It’s no big secret that we must take care of our environment today for the success and well-being of our future generations. Forty-one projects in 24 states, including California, will receive TogetherGreen Conservation Innovation Grants totaling $1.4 million dollars. Winners were selected from applicants nationwide for their innovative approaches at inspiring people to tackle environmental problems in their communities. California is getting involved and has received one of these 41 newly-announced TogetherGreen national innovation grants. The grant will enable the Audubon Center at LA’s Debs Park to involve under served children and their families in meaningful conservation activities that enhance threatened coastal sage scrub, grasslands habitat and benefit wildlife.
The five-year TogetherGreen initiative was just launched this past spring and will significantly benefit the environment. Community volunteer days have already begun in over 40 cities across the country and www.TogetherGreen.org helps users take conservation action and share and celebrate conservation success stories.
I’m writing to you today to see if you would be interested in helping the initiative by informing your readers about TogetherGreen and especially about the grant in California. It is our hope that as the year goes on we see awareness and participation continue to increase. We would love for your blog to be a part of the reason.
