Environmental, Social and Civic Empowerment for your Community
Adopt Your Neighborhood works to improve environmental awareness and foster a sense of community in neighborhoods throughout Orange County. The program pinpoints a neighborhood's concerns and then provides the resource (education, funding, outreach) to make the changes. Working together to take ownership of one's community, the neighborhood will gain a sense of social and civic responsibility.
Adopt Your Watershed reconnects individuals with their surrounding natural environment, particularly focusing on water quality issues. Communities and individuals are asked to adopt their local watershed to remove and prevent litter and pollution, rebuild the natural habitat, and develop a high level of understanding of the interconnectivity of a healthy watershed, a healthy community, healthy economy, and a healthy body.
Keep Orange County Beautiful is a county wide environmental outreach program. Cities, counties and school districts can share information countywide. Earth Resource provides consistent environmental messages and education through out the county.
