The goal of the
Conservation Outreach and Education Program is to provide residents and
businesses with information, motivation and tools needed to conserve the
natural resources managed by the Public Works and Utilities Department.
This program has become a leader in environmental education through the
continued support from City Council and our community since 1990.
A Program For Everyone
What makes this program unique is that it provides FREE services for all ages and sectors of the population with a multicultural approach. We use City facilities and local natural resources as teaching tools. We also use bilingual programs and materials and financial incentives to encourage conservation. Providing these tools along with information and inspiration is what leads to a change in behavior in conservation.
