Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup for the week of February 24.
Bham Now readers. Here is a great chance for your to help create an important document.
The Green Resource Center for Alabama (GRCA) is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Green Progress Report. This year’s report is set to be released during Earth Month in April of 2018.
The Green Progress Report has featured the important developments that make Alabama a greener place to live, work and play throughout Alabama since 2008. The report is divided into nine categories: Land Conservation and Preservation; Environmental Education; Energy Efficiency; Transportation; Recycling and Cleanups; Parks Trails and Recreation; Building and Design; Corporate Sustainability; and Sustainability Progress and Initiatives.
Submissions are welcomed from everyone ranging from environmental groups to corporations to small businesses and nonprofits. To be considered, the following information needs to be included in your submission: The organization name, website, entry category name (see category list above), title of project or initiative and the details (500 word or less limit), a URL link to a publication or other online resource documenting submission, at least one photo (not including logos) of the project, and a contact name.
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on March 1st.
We highly recommend checking out past Green Progress Reports at grcalabama.org. They are truly inspirational and provide you an idea of the progress that has been made in the past 10 years.
