Government

Our local, county, and state governments are busy establishing grounds to support green initiatives in our communities. Government leaders are creating policies to address ecology based issues. Task forces are popping up among our municipalities aimed at improving our use of energy and environment. Area parks are acting to raise public awareness associated with ecological concerns.
