Hmmm? How about "actions to help conserve our natural resources?" Right, think of it as your chance to feel like a superhero! Join us as we explore volunteer opportunities for conservation here in Georgia. If you have ever wondered what you can do help our natural environment, this whirlwind show is for you.
We'll join volunteer groups like Trees Atlanta, the Nature Conservancy, and the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign as they strive to find ways to reduce human impact on the environment. They'll tell us how we can help, and have fun, at the same time. We'll visit an eco-friendly house and learn how you can make your own home more energy-efficient.
We'll also visit the Chattahoochee Nature Center, Trout Unlimited, and a few other fun volunteer groups. Whew.
And we'll meet Conserve-Action Man. If he can help our environment, anyone can!
