Community Voices

As The Environmental Center launches into a new decade of service, we are doing a lot of listening - to our community, our supporters, and to those whose voices have not been heard in the past. Listening to our whole community is an essential step as we chart the way forward for The Environmental Center’s programs and services. The work we do together is important. There will be a lot of critical decisions ahead as the region grows and changes.

Thank you for being a part of a community that works together with thoughtfulness, hope and care for our environment as we prepare for the future.
