Awareness_to_Action.pdf This booklet profiles 15 amazing community stewardship groups that have been involved in a variety of inspiring environmental projects - from water quality monitoring to tree planting to hosting public information sessions. Each profile includes information on the group, their project, costs, sources of funding, and the challenges they overcame, with the hope that these ‘lessons learned’ will benefit and inspire people looking for help with similar projects.
