Our natural resources are among our most precious treasures. The GFWC Environment Community Service Program encourages us to be stewards of our environment. Through preservation and restoration of natural resources, it strives to educate members about the importance of beautifying our communities, maintaining and restoring natural resources, and stimulating citizen action to address these concerns. Our most precious resources include water, trees, plants, air, land, and wildlife.
Incorporate any and all of these topics into your plans. The project ideas are endless.
