GFWC WV Jrs Crown Jewels of Volunteers... - CONSERVATION
Jerri Hinebaugh, Chairman
Hi, I'm looking forward to serving with you the next two years. Conservation is something near and dear to most of us so it's fun to jump on board with projects and programs. Don't forget to save your dimes for stone water fountains at the WV State parks!
Please let me know if you need anything!
new conservation partnership
GOOD NEWS FOR CONSERVATION PARTNERSHIP!!!
We are excited to announce our new partnership with the Alliance for Community Trees, Inc. ACTrees supports the needs of communities, nonprofits, business, and others engaged in urban forestry. We encourage GFWC Clubs to participate in the organization’s annual National NeighborhoodWoods ™ Month by registering tree-planting events. Members are invited to volunteer at local tree planting and community green infrastructure education events.
Alliance for Community Trees, Inc. is located at 4603 Calvert Road in College Park , MD 20740 .
The website is filled with information. Check out each Tab, “About Us, What We Do, News, Resources and Donate.” There is information on “Who’s Who In Your State. It provides contact names/emails, web addresses and locations in each state and Canada for:
ACTrees Member Organizations
State & Urban Community Forestry Coordinator
State Urban & Community Forestry Council
U.S. Regional Coordinator for Urban & Community Forestry
It is truly an exciting partnership. There is something for every state to become involved in. It is an opportunity to educate our members and communities as to how “trees” really make a difference.
I am hopeful to have more information available at the GFWC International Board Meeting this November. Staff is in the process of updating the Conservation Community Service Program section of the Club Manual, and will inform you when this is completed.
So spread the word to all your clubs about GFWC’s new partner and that trees are one of our best friends in the field of Conservation.
