See the Solution

As we go about our daily lives, we are aware of the environmental problems and issues, large and small, within our neighborhoods and communities. Why not take a moment to share that knowledge, to begin the process of identifying and solving the problems?

How do you envision the possible solutions to the environmental issues you see every day?

What would it take to make those solutions become a reality? Please make suggestions for solutions, with estimates of the resource needs (money, volunteer time, equipment, special skills).

Are you willing to be a part of the solution? Who else might be willing or able to help?

Be the Solution

Everyone can Be the Solution! Get involved in protecting your health and the environment in some way, big or small. It is time for each of us to take responsibility, to take action, to work together to change the world around us for the better.

How you can help:

  • Money (no donation is too small or too large)
  • In kind help (equipment, services)
  • Time, energy, skills (volunteer)
